In many parts of the world, there are Christians who are persecuted simply because of the fact that they are Christians. They need not only our material help but also our prayer. Let us join with the Pope in praying for persecuted Christians.
“How many people are being persecuted because of their faith, forced to abandon their homes, their places of worship, their lands, their loved ones !
They are persecuted and killed because they are Christians.
Those who persecute them make no distinction between the religious communities to which they belong.
I ask you : how many of you pray for persecuted Christians ?
Do it with me, that they may experience the support of all the Churches and communities, through prayer and material assistance.”
