I saw this report about a prayer rally for Christians who are being persecuted, who are dying and on the run, in Iraq, murdered and tormented by Islamic terrorists. HERE
This is what Pope Francis was talking about. ¡Hagan lío!
Holy Innocents Church Prays for the Christians in Iraq
The very active and vibrant community of faith at the Church of the Holy Innocents has parishioners who decided to organize a “Rally for Peace” in order to pray in solidarity for the Christians who are persecuted, murdered, martyred, and expelled from their very homes in the Iraq and Syria by violent and murderous people.
Many of these people who decided to attend this rally also decided to attend the 6PM Mass at Holy Innocents beforehand. This moved a lot of people and brought many more to the 6pm traditional Mass that takes place daily at Holy Innocents. There were 140 people in attendance for Mass, which was a good turnout as the reporter from NET (New Evangelization Television from the Diocese of Brooklyn) noted.
There are a lot of photos of the event. Well done!
In nearby Herald Square.
The Holy Innocents community are happy to take it to the streets.
