A beautiful moment in Pakistan. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for these people, both Muslim and Christian.
Thanks for posting this. This kind of thing needs to be posted, to let people know, so we can work, as the Church wants, for peace with Muslims
this is a good post
Thanks for posting this–and we need to start praying for Mr. Nasir, the organizer; he is probably on a hit list now.
What a story. That made my day. Prayers definitely.
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”
“Since in the course of centuries not a few quarrels and hostilities have arisen between Christians and Moslems, this sacred synod urges all to forget the past and to work sincerely for mutual understanding and to preserve as well as to promote together for the benefit of all mankind social justice and moral welfare, as well as peace and freedom.” — Nostra Aetate § 3
They’re doin’ it right
To stand up for the rights of another outside one’s “tribe” always takes courage. But to do so in the political climate of Pakistan is nothing short of heroic. God bless and protect these brave souls.
It’s stories like this that offer some hope and give the lie to the idea, often advanced by advocates of Middle Eastern Christians, that “Islam is the problem” and that the only solution is man up and say it and then presumably to take a harder tack with Muslims wherever we find them. Extremism is the common enemy.
