Sister Maria de Guadalupe belongs to the Religious Family of the Incarnate Word, which was founded by Father Carlos Miguel Buela in Argentina in 1988. Sr. Guadalupe, who is from Argentina, has been a missionary in several countries of the Middle East for over 18 years. Four of these years she has been in Syria. A few months after her arrival in Syria in 2011, the war began, something, Sr. Guadalupe said no one expected.
Sr. Guadalupe was recently invited to share her testimony at a special event at the United Nations headquarters in New York on April 28, organized by Archbishop Bernadito Auza, Apostolic Nuncio and Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations. The event, co-sponsored by +Libres, CitizenGo and In Defence of Christians, had as its theme, “Defending religious freedom and other human rights: stopping mass atrocities against Christians and other believers.” Speaking in Spanish, with simultaneous translation in English, Sr. Guadalupe, with the help of a slideshow with graphic images commended the faith and resilience of the persecuted Christian community of Syria under the ISIS terrorist group. In our edition of THE BACKGROUNDER today, we bring you excerpts from the testimony of Sr. Maria de Guadalupe at the UN event.
