Jerusalem Patriarch: pray for Middle East Christians

Catholic World News - September 05, 2013

Patriarch Fouad Twal, the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, has called for prayers for Middle East Christians during this time of crisis.

“We have many challenges, we have many problems,” he told Vatican Radio. “We are really afraid, afraid for the present and for the future … A result of this fear is the emigration of many Christians from Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan.”

“We rely on collaboration and solidarity, and especially prayers,” he added. “We still believe in the power of prayer … In anticipation we are very grateful for any solidarity, any prayer. We need peace -- and when I say peace, it is peace for all the inhabitants of this region, whether Jews, Muslims, or Christians.”
