Worthy State Deputies

Attached is a PDF of a newly-created prayer card. You're all familiar with the Order's program of outreach and assistance to Christians and other persecuted minorities in the Middle East. Those who are suffering need our material support, and to-date the Order has provided more than $4.4 million in direct assistance. They also need our prayers.

Members and others are encouraged to pray this prayer - composed by Archbishop Lori - regularly. As council chaplains conduct blessing services for Solidarity Crosses - more than 1100 councils have purchased crosses so far - this prayer can be part of those services.

I'll let you know as soon as the cards are printed. That communication will include information on how to order in quantity.
Meanwhile, please feel free to share this PDF with members and councils in your jurisdiction, post it to your state council web site and, for those who have yet to have your mid-year meeting, pray it at that meeting.

Vivat Jesus.
