Crying For Help In Egypt


burnt-church

Many Christian and Catholic Churches in Egypt are being burned and are under attack by the Muslim Brotherhood. We need to pray continually for this to come to an abrupt end. Lord have mercy on us all.

Kudos to Fr. Z. and The Blaze:

“A wave of devastating violence swept through Egypt Wednesday as the government attempted to disband the supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi from their sit-ins. According to the Associated Press, 638 people have now been confirmed killed, and nearly 4,000 are injured.”
