USCCB, CRS send memo to bishops on Egypt

Catholic World News - August 27, 2013

The chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace and the chairman of the board of Catholic Relief Services have sent a memorandum on Egypt to all the bishops of the United States.

“Our Conference will continue to reach out directly to the people and Church in Egypt,” wrote Bishops Richard Pates and Gerald Kicanas. “At the same time we will urge our government to find ways to support respect for human rights, religious freedom, and the building of an inclusive democracy in which all Egyptians have a stake and a voice.”

“We will serve those most in need,” they added, “and press for an end to the violence, a return to the rule of law, the protection of the Christian community, and the initiation of ‘dialogue and reconciliation’ that leads to an inclusive future for all Egyptians.”
