California Church leaders unite to support persecuted Christians
Catholic World News - January 20, 2011
A California bishop has secured the support of 30 other Christian leaders for a strongly worded statement in support of persecuted Christians.
In an initiative for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Bishop Jaime Soto of Sacramento recruited the 30 ministers, representing a variety of denominations, to express “our common concern for the recent savage attacks on Christians in a number of places throughout the world.”
Emphasizing the moral imperative for all Christians to unite in support of those who are persecuted for the faith, the joint statement says: “The terrible suffering of fellow Christians urges us now to stand in solidarity with them, to pray with them and for them.”
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
