Adopt a christian from Mosul

 

 

 

 

For months now Pope Francis and the Iraqi Church have been imploring us not to "stand silently by" "or "look the other way" as our brothers and sisters are persecuted because of their faith.

The Pope is also asking Christians to "pray intensely" in an "effective participation" and sign of "tangible support" for all of them. This is why, some time ago, AsiaNews launched the campaign "Adopt a Christian from Mosul" which has allowed us to raise and send approximately 1.5 million Euros to support the daily needs of Iraqi refugees who fled Mosul under the threat of the Islamic State. Their needs continue to be enormous and their return home far from immediate. Because of this, the bishops are planning the transition from emergency plans that have been in place until now to a more stable relief program. This will entail the transfer of all the Christian refugees - about 130 thousand people, 21 thousand families - to houses, where they can restart their lives, get a job, think about their children's future. AsiaNews asks our readers and friends to continue to support our campaign "Adopt a Christian from Mosul" so we can help cover the costs of this project, which amounts to an estimated 3.5 million euro.

New Vicar of Jerusalem to focus on young people and education, future of peace and hope



Mgr Giacinto-Boulos Marcuzzo stressed the importance of education to ensure the future of new generations. The Church is a sign of "unity" in a context "marked by divisions" and a bridge in interfaith dialogue. The situation has gone from euphoria for peace to resignation over permanent conflict. He appeals to Western Christians to come as pilgrims to the Holy Land.
