Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Please do not underestimate the power of your prayers. They can bear much fruit and are needed for the people of Sudan. Please consider offering this prayer daily for an end to the violence and suffering.


 Bishop Eduardo Hiiboro Kussala

I call upon the love of Jesus Christ and the protection of Our Father in Heaven for the people of the South Sudan during this time of great trial and persecution.

I pray that God will protect them from violent and unjust treatment. I pray the Holy Spirit will remain with them and that they will not lose hope; that emergency humanitarian aid will continue to reach all who are in need; and that all God’s children throughout South Sudan will be able to live in peace.

May God be with them and give them strength as they struggle against persecution, displacement and dire need.

Lepers Still Suffer Among Us

Leprosy is an infectious but curable disease. Yet some 200,000 people around the world are still affected today, most suffering in poor and remote parts of Africa and Asia.
