An initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

Call to Prayer: August 8, 2014

Intention: We pray for a restoration of peace and justice for Christians and other religious communities in Iraq.

Reflection: For the past month, Christians and other religious communities in Iraq have been targeted by the Islamic State and left with nothing as they were forced to leave their homeland.  We join Pope Francis as we continue to pray for our brothers and sisters there and urge the U.S. to provide critical assistance to them.  May we never take religious freedom for granted.
