    Thousands of Catholics greet Mgr Girelli in Tan An



    The non-resident nuncio is currently visiting the Mekong Delta region. Greater efforts are needed to achieve a more balanced economic development. For this, people must place their trust in God, be compassionate and love one another in order to build a better and more peaceful world.

    Hanoi (AsiaNews/Agencies) - Archbishop Leopoldo Girelli, the non-resident representative of the Holy See to Vietnam, met and talked with more than 3,000 priests and parishioners during his visit to Tan An, a city in the Mekong Delta region.

    Government media quoted the prelate as saying that he was very happy to visit Long An province (pictured), home to 36,000 Catholics, and one of the country's most industrialised areas.

    In order to ensure a more balanced economic development, the local community must place its trust in God, be compassionate and love one another so as to build a better and more peaceful world.

    On this trip, the prelate also visited My Tho Diocese in Tien Giang province (southern Vietnam).

    His plans also include other dioceses as well, starting with Dong Thap.

    "Adopt a Christian from Mosul": A Christmas gift to survive winter

    Bernardo Cervellera

    As Iraqi troops advance in the Nineveh Plain and Mosul, a new wave of refugees could overshadow the fate of other refugees who found hospitality in Kurdistan. People need kerosene, winter clothes, aid for children, and money for rent. The campaign AsiaNews launched two years ago is more urgent than ever. Give up a superfluous gift to offer refugees an essential gift for life.

    Pastor of Amadiya: Mosul’s Christian refugees, torn between emergency aid and the longing to return home

    P. Samir Youssef

    In a letter Fr. Samir Youssef describes the situation of refugees, exiled from their home for more than two years. They are closely following the offensive to retake Mosul, although their homes and churches "are for the most part" burned or destroyed. With the arrival of winter there is a serve lack of heating oil, clothes, food and money to pay for their children’s school bus. An appeal to continue to support the AsiaNews campaign.
