Prayers for the Christians of Mosul, Iraq.

As I've mentioned on the thread in Talking Stick, 'Muslim Persecution of Christians', those in Mosul now face a terrible future at the hands of the ISIS extremists. Prayers are surely needed for these latest victims of Islamic persecution.

I have no influence at all at our church, but we have only taken in one family from Iraq, at Our Lady of Sorrows.. We ought to do more. Yes, I will pray for them.

Article about it, here. I'm doing the prayers in church today, so will mention this, as well as the siege of Gaza.
Brendan Behan once went on a lecture tour of Canada. On his arrival, a reporter asked him why he'd come to Canada. Behan replied "I saw an advert that said 'Drink Canada Dry', and I thought 'I'll try anything once!'"
