CWN Editor's Note: Two Jesuit priests and four members of the Missionaries of Charity are still in Afghanistan, as Taliban forces strengthen their grip on the country. A Jesuit spokesman reports that the order has “suspended our mission” and is working to evacuate the two priests. The Missionaries of Charity declined to give details on their sisters, citing security concerns, but said that they too are working for their safe departure. Both orders asked for prayers.
