Monsignor’s Message – Prayers for Christ’s Missionaries

Posted on Sep 21, 2017 in Monsignor's Message, Msgr. Kieran Harrington

This is a message from Msgr. Kieran Harrington, Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn that appears in The Tablet:

This past week, Father Tom Uzhunnalil was freed by his ISIS captors. The Salesian priest was taken hostage in March 2016 while ministering at a home for the aged and disabled in Yemen. Sixteen people were murdered in the attack on the Missionary of Charity home. This week, let us commit ourselves to praying for our brothers and sisters who serve as missionaries in far–off and frequently dangerous places in our world. These brave souls model for us what it means to leave all behind for Christ. They make the leap of faith and give us the strength to do the same.

May God bless you,
Monsignor Kieran Harrington, V.E.
