|In solidarity with our Persecuted Brethren in Iraq and Syria|
As we announced last week, Friday will be a Day of Adoration and Prayer around the world for the persecuted Christians of Iraq, Syria, and the Middle East. We know that it has spread from the Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP) to a great number of churches around the world. Please, try to take part in one of the many public acts of intercession for the safety of our brothers expelled from their homes and cities, maimed, and for consolation for the families of the many martyrs.
If you absolutely cannot go to one of these public acts, or to personal time of adoration before the Lord -- and even if you do go, but have some spare time and wish to join others around the world on this special day, LiveMass.org offers an almost round-the-clock opportunity to do so.
The special live schedule for this Friday is the following, beginning in a few hours in Fribourg, Switzerland all the way to evening adoration in Guadalajara, Mexico. The times are all in EDT (US/Canada Eastern Daylight Time). For GMT (UTC), add 4 hours; for London, UK and Ireland (Summer Time), add 5 hours; for Rome and most of the European Mainland (Summer Time), add 6 hours; for Eastern Australia, add 14 hours.
