|Fr. Nathaniel Haslam LC appeals for prayer for Christians in Iraq.|
Pope Francis and the US Bishops are calling for Christians
around the world to join in prayer for those who
are suffering persecution in Iraq, and to pray for peace
in the Middle East.
In a video message (here) to
the Regnum Christi members in Houston, Texas, Fr. Nathaniel Haslam
LC joins the pope and bishops is asking for prayer.
In an email to RC members, he mentions the US
Bishops are inviting everyone to dedicate next Sunday, August 17,
to prayer for this intention.
“Please join your parishes in their
initiatives of solidarity and aid to our brothers and sisters,
and their pastors, who are undergoing such a brutal trial,”
He references the following link on the USCCB website:
Fr. Nathaniel reminded RC members that all Christians must
follow the Lord in embracing their cross.
“Let us not deceive
ourselves that this is something
passing,” he said.
