Let Us Not Forget Our Iraqi Brothers and Sisters

The bishops of Iraqi are canceling midnight Masses this year out of fear of violence to Church goers. Such is the sorry state of that country. Many have been martyred for their faith.

Let us not forget them, our brothers and sisters, who continue to suffer much because they are Christians. We have no idea, really, what they endure.

Let us pray for them this weekend.

    these people are my heros, they go to mass in fear of their lives, I go to mass fearing the traffic.

  2. Deacon Bob says:

    Yes, in many ways they are courageous. Many of them have been martyred. I will post today on an article about the persecution of Christians.

    Thanks for your interest and responses, Karen.
