Fast For IraqSomething worth considering. Zenit reports on Chaldean Patriarch Emmanuel III Delly's call for two days of fasting and prayer for peace in Iraq. "We have estranged ourselves from God by our deeds, we do not obey his will, and we have moved away from piety and virtue, from forgiveness, and because of this the blood of so many brothers has been shed and so many children have remained orphans." For this reason, the Christian representative said, "we must return, repentant to God's house to do the will of our sovereign God." "To achieve this sublime objective, we invite all Iraqis, in and outside of Iraq, and all believers and people of good will, to prayer and fasting this coming Monday the 3rd and Tuesday the 4th of April, so that the Lord will restore peace, tranquility and security to Iraq, country of our beloved Abraham." Anybody in with us?
