Break the silence on persecuted Christians

MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen held a conference and exhibition at the European Parliament to denounce the silence surrounding the suffering of persecuted Christians worldwide. The EU must take stronger action against violations of freedom of religion, especially in Africa where lives are lost due to this silence.

Speaking from the sidelines of the presentation ceremony for the Zayed Award, Cardinal Michael Czerny, SJ, the ad interim Prefect of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, says the “marvellous” idea of human fraternity, that all women and men are siblings, “is very timely contribution” that Pope Francis has made, especially in view of the social and political problems of the world today. 

At the same time, he notes that human fraternity is not a “solution, as such,” but instead a means of resolving problems.”

Cardinal Czerny says that “every effort at dialogue is a step forward,” and credits Pope Francis for demonstrating how to dialogue, not just in words, but especially in “deeds of mercy and justice.”
