Our US Bishops have called for a Day of Prayer this Sunday August 17. Let us pray with the church for these intentions. Details here:
Back when Among Women was young, in 2010, then- Sister Olga Yacob spent time with me sharing her experiences of being an Iraqi who lived through the war-torn years, and who later came to the USA. At the time of this interview with me, she was a campus minister at Boston University. Today, we call her Mother Olga, as she is the foundress of a new religious order, the Daughters of Mary of Nazareth.
Given all that has been taking place in Iraq, especially with the persecution of Christians and other minorities, I was not surprised to find Mother Olga bringing a message of peace to us and to the world. In the video that follows, Mother Olga Yacob, talks about loss of life and homes and Christian heritage in Iraq, on EWTN’s “The World Over”.
Please continue to pray for the situation in Iraq and for all those who face violence and persecution throughout the world. They are our brothers and sisters.
To send immediate help, donate now to Catholic Relief Services who have a special fund to help Iraqi families in need.
