This time of year is traditionally a time for us to open our wallets and contribute to a worthy cause. At this time of year, I can think of no better place to invest our money than for our Christian brothers and sisters in the Holy Land and the Middle East. There is great suffering in this part of the world in what can only be called religious genocide. Every week, Christians are being martyred for their faith in Jesus Christ. The slaughter in Iraq is just the most recent examples of the whole sale massacre of Christians in this part of the world. WARNING: photos in the linked article are graphic.
For some reason, no one seems to care; not the media, not our government, not even mainstream Christians in the United States.
So if you would like to help our Christian brothers and sisters in the the Middle East, I encourage you to find a good charity and send them a donation (any amount is a blessing). My favorite is:
Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land
God Bless and I hope everyone has a wonderful Advent and Christmas Season.
