Around the world, the persecution of Christians is becoming more and more prevalent and public. After hearing of a Pennsylvania priest's efforts to create awareness of the problem by wearing the orange that has become associated with the execution of Christians by Muslim extremists, Fr. Sal Ruggeri decided to take action at St. John of the Cross Parish. So on Sunday, April 26th, the campaign to create awareness of this deadly persecution was launched by offering orange ribbons and wristbands at Mass and by encouraging parishioners to wear these items and spread the word. Each Sunday, the parish bulletin contains information about one of the countries on the Watch List, where persecution is the worst in the world, and at all Sunday Masses the intentions include prayers for that country. And the parish Social Justice Commission has taken up the cause as well, helping to prepare the prayer petitions and seeking other ways to take action.

All Catholics are called to promote justice in the world through prayer and action. In support of our persecuted brothers and sisters, let us learn, pray, and act to remember the needs of those who suffer in the many places where Christians are not welcome.

of the Global Persecution of Christians
Jordan #30
Tensions between moderate and radical Islamic elements in Jordanian society are on the increase, under influence of the Arab uprisings and civil war in Syria. Tribal antagonism is clearly mixed with Islam. Jordanian society is multi-ethnic a phenomenon
which is also reflected by the monarchy. Jordan hosts large groups of refugees, mostly from Iraq and Syria, which leads to economic, political and religious pressure and are a potential destabilizing factor. The number of Christians in the country has been declining for half a century. For a long time, Jordan has been one of the most liberal countries of
the region in terms of freedom of religion. However, the tide seems to be turning against Christians, especially for Christian converts from a Muslim background (MBBs) who suffer the most persecution.
Please pray for all Christians who are persecuted.
