A Cry for Help

The Catholic Near East Welfare Association … actually have people on the ground… The Iraqi Christian community is helping the Yezidis; warning on the pictures on the first one, they aren’t pleasant

and CNEWA sent out an email asking for more help, it didn’t mention the Yezidis for reasons that I think are really easy to guess. Regarding prayers there is this quote from the letter:

“Right this minute, Iraq’s Christian families face absolute annihilation. Yes, they’re in our prayers. But they need more: the strongest support we can give.”

Incidentally, today is also a day of prayer for the Iraqi Christians:

So both our prayers and any other support we can give them is needed.
