Aiding the Oppressed: Network of Shrines to Help Persecuted Christians Underway

National Catholic Register, Edward Pentin:

“We are delighted by your prayers as oppressed Christians of Iraq,” said Yohanna Towaya, a Syriac Catholic grandfather who was made destitute under ISIS and now experiences daily uncertainty and hardship in northern Iraq. “We are in dire need of them. This unites us as the Body of Christ.”

Towaya was speaking to the Register Nov. 30 in light of three shrines to persecuted Christians established over the past four years by Nasarean.org, a Vermont-based Catholic charity dedicated to helping Christians facing persecution. Report is here.
