Canadian bishops’ conference calls for release of imprisoned Pakistani girl

Catholic World News - September 07, 2012

“These measures would be a testimony to the encounter of our two religious traditions and their Holy Books in their appeal to God’s mercy,” said Bishop François Lapierre of Saint-Hyacinthe.
