ASKS Parishes to
Offer Special Prayer
on August 17 for
Peace in Iraq
WASHINGTON— Bishop Richard E. Pates, the chairman of the Committee of
International Justice and Peace of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)
asked the U.S. bishops to invite the people of their dioceses to pray for
peace in Iraq on Sunday, August 17.
Pates recounted the struggles of Christians and others in Iraq who have
faced the destruction, burning and looting of churches, homes and businesses
and, under threat of the Islamic State (ISIS) to join their extremist brand
of Islam, have fled for their lives.
Accordingly, he urged Catholics to let their elected representatives know of
their concern that humanitarian assistance reach Christian and other
religious minorities who are suffering in Iraq, Syria and other countries.

Candidate Questionnaire Project: Let your conscience be your guide.
Catholic faithful are called to political engagement shaped by the moral
convictions of well-formed consciences and focused on the dignity of every
human being, the pursuit of the common good, and the protection of the weak
and the vulnerable. To help parishioners become informed on where candidates
stand on key issues, the Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops has polled
those running for U.S. Congress, the Florida Legislature, and Florida
Governor. To see how candidates appearing on the August 26 Primary
Election / November 4 General Election ballot responded to the
questionnaire, visit www.flaccb.org/CQP/2014.
