Knights of Columbus to assist Iraqi Christians - and you can help

The Knights of Columbus have posted the following Prayer for Those Persecuted in Iraq:
O God of all the Nations,
the One God who is and was and always will be,
who in your providence willed that your Church be united to the
suffering of your Son,
look with mercy on your servants in Iraq
who are persecuted for their faith in you.

Grant them perseverance and courage to be worthy imitators of Christ.
Bring your wisdom upon leaders of nations to work for peace among all peoples.

May your Spirit open conversion for those who contradict your will that we live in harmony.
And in all things may we be united in truth and freedom to seek your will in our lives.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Our Lady, Queen of Peace,
Pray for us.
The Knights of Columbus also announced that they will match donations to assist the persecuted Iraqi Christians - up to $500,000 - for a total gift of $1,000,000. To contribute toward this most important endeavor, you can either donate online or send your contribution to:
K of C Christian Refugee Relief
Knights of Columbus Charities
P.O. Box 1966
New Haven, CT 06509-1966
Please be as generous as you are able.
