1 million Pakistani Catholics pray for persecutors

Gathering at Pakistan’s principal Marian shrine the weekend before the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, over half of the nation’s 1.6 million Catholics prayed for their persecutors. “Let us pray and fast for the transformation of terrorists involved in the recent anti-Christian violence,” Father Emmanuel Asi preached on September 5. “We are a complete part of this country and want to become instruments of peace.”
