Roman Catholic Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Parish, 24 hours a day - 7 days a week

Message

Bishop Sullivan has asked I share the following
information with you from Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, President of the USCCB.
Today, the people of God must speak up for our brothers and sisters facing genocide in the Middle East.
I urge every Catholic to sign the petition at www.stopthechristiangenocide.org.
As people of faith, we must convince the United States Department
of State to include Christians in any formal declaration of genocide.
For months, the Catholic Church has been a voice for Christians and other religious minorities facing the
evil of deadly persecution. Now, the State Department is expected to make a decision within
days. A resolution, H. Con. Res. 75, is also gaining bipartisan support in Congress. Please, make sure
your name is added to the witness. The very future of the ancient Christian presence in the Middle East is at
stake.
I am grateful to my brother bishops, the Knights of Columbus and all the faithful who have struggled to
keep a focus on suffering Christians in the national debate. Rest assured of my continued prayers and
support.
With each passing day, the roll of modern martyrs grows.
While we rejoice in their ultimate victory over death through the power of Jesus’ love,
we must also help our fellow Christians to carry the Cross of persecution and, as much as possible,
help relieve their suffering. By doing so, the Middle East and the world will be made safe for people of every faith to live in peace.
