 URGENT APPEAL FOR PRAYERS – The Pope has invited everyone to raise up with one voice a ceaseless prayer for an end to the dramatic situation of the peoples in the north of Iraq, in particular the plight of the Christian Communities in that region. In the Angelus prayer of July 20, the Pope said, “May the God of Peace create in all an authentic desire for dialogue and reconciliation. Violence is not conquered with violence. Violence is conquered with peace! Let us pray in silence, asking for peace; everyone, in silence… Mary Queen of peace, pray for us!”

In honor of our celebration of “Love” August 24th a sincere thank you to all the participants and numerous volunteers.

CCCB issues appeal for mercy, compassion and justice in the Middle East and throughout the world

The Executive Committee of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has issued an appeal “for mercy, compassion and justice in the Middle East and throughout the world”. The text was approved at the Executive’s meeting earlier this week on August 25, 2014. In its message, the Executive states: “As followers of the Crucified One, we recognize particularly in the Middle East the sufferings of our own brothers and sisters in faith. Moved by their pains and afflictions, we make their cause our own. We are united with them in solidarity and faith.” The appeal is addressed “to all people – of every faith and in the name of good will, here in Canada and around the world – to do even more to assist the suffering of those in need.”
