|Exactly what it looks like|
Nicholas Samra, Melkite-Catholic bishop of Newton, has requested that the faithful pray and fast in the weeks leading up to the feast of Ss. Peter and Paul and dedicate their efforts to the Christians of Syria, who are particularly afflicted by the on-going war in that country. I suspect most of my readers are Roman Catholic, but I ask you to consider taking up this effort. Many already fast and abstain on Fridays, so perhaps you could recall the Syrian churches on that day of the week. Any priest readers could remember them at Mass during the Canon. A lot can be done and needs to be done.
