Being our brothers' keepers

Since we are praying this week for the Church to once again, using John Paul II's metaphor from his Apostolic Letter Orientale Lumen, "breathe with two lungs", the reunification of the Orthodox and Catholic Churches, I want to introduce you to an association that is very dear to me: Catholic Near Eastern Welfare Association. More particularly, here is a link to a fascinating and wonderful article in CNEWA's current issue of their magazine One entitled Orthodox Alaska, by Yereth Rosen.

I urge you all to consider donating to this wonderful Pontifical agency, founded by Pope Pius XI in 1926. It is so very vital to support Christian communities in the lands where our faith began. After supporting your own parish and diocese, this is an agency worthy of your support.
