Watch: Soldiers Restore Virgin Mary Statue Smashed by ISIS

This is Christian Iraq an advocacy group posted a video on their Facebook page of Iraqi soldiers from the Babylonian Brigade restoring and venerating a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary that was smashed by ISIS. ISIS hates Jesus and Mary a lot. They cannot stand both Jesus Christ and His mother Mary.

The soldiers prop upright the statue of Our Lady as much as possible and asked for her intercession. Others venerated the statue of Our Lady by kissing her feet.

According to Catholic News Agency, “The statue of Mary was found in the destroyed Mar Behnam monastery in south east Mosul. ISIS allegedly blew up the 4th century Syriac Catholic monastery two years ago, in March 2015. The monks had been expelled by ISIS in summer 2014, told to leave immediately and not allowed to gather any of the monastery’s relics to take with them. The monastery was built on the tomb of St. Berhnam and his sister Sarah, who were converted to Christianity by St Matthew.”
