Pope Francis

 

Solidarity with our persecuted brethren:

#WeAreN

 

#WeAreN is trending on social media, a campaign of solidarity with persecuted Iraqi Christians. This refers to the Arabic letter ن, or "n", which ISIS militants have used to mark the homes of "Nazarene" or Christian families.

 For nearly the entire history of the Church, Christians have lived in Mosul, an ancient city in northern Iraq. As of this week, however, the few remaining Christians have been forced from their homes, ordered to convert to Islam under pain of death, or killed.

During his weekly Angelus address this past Sunday, Pope Francis urged all Catholics and other people of good will to pray in solidarity with the Christians of Mosul as he offered his own expression of unity with the suffering:


“Today our brothers are persecuted ... they are banished from their homes and forced to flee without even being able to take their belongings! ... My dear brothers and sisters who are persecuted, I know how much you suffer; I know that you are deprived of all. I am with you in faith in He who conquered evil."

 

So what can we do?

 

1. PRAY

Can you take a few minutes right now to intercede for our persecuted brothers and sisters?

 

Let us pray,

Almighty, ever-living God, Your incarnate Son taught us that those who suffer for your name are blessed.

Give love for their neighbor to all people of goodwill.

Inspire rulers and governments to work tirelessly for peace, justice and freedom for all.

Give us a spirit of solidarity and of service for those who suffer and who are poor, that we may bring to them that love your Son made manifest by his suffering and death on the cross.

Help us to recognize the face of the Evil One in our day and give us the strength and means to confront his many works. Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray: and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Have mercy on us. 
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Have mercy on us. 
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Have mercy on us.

 

2. SACRIFICE

Consider offering some form of penance for the Church suffering -- abstaining from meat for a day, skipping dessert, fasting from entertainment, etc.

  

3. STAY INFORMED

Vatican Radio, NewAdvent.org, Catholic News Agency, and SaveMiddleEastChristians.com are good sources for the latest news.


Please spread the word by sharing these articles with your friends and neighbors on social media.

  

4. OFFER CONCRETE SUPPORT

Catholic Relief Services offers aid to refugees in emergency situations. Consider making a donation, and be sure to specify 'Iraqi Christians' as the reason for your gift.

   

Mary, Help of Christians, pray for us!

"Family: Become What  You Are"

 

Read the letter and download additional resources


Pope Saint John Paul the Great wrote in 1981, “The future of humanity passes by way of the family. It is therefore indispensable and urgent that every person of good will should endeavor to save and foster the values and requirements of the family.”


The truth and timeliness of this statement is as relevant now as it was more than 30 years ago. In his latest pastoral letter, Archbishop Aquila urges us to rediscover the beauty of the sacrament of marriage, which alone can build strong families.
