Day of fasting in memory of the Chaldean martyrs

A website run by Iraqi Christians has published an article entitled "Churches organise day of fasting on 9 December to remember the martyrs of Baghdad’s cathedral" (Ankawa, December 3, 2010).

A Chaldean seminarian writes: "I'd like to invite you all join this fast in solidarity with the churches in Iraq if you feel the call to do so, whether it be through not eating meat, not listening to the radio, or some other way."

While this post appears here somewhat belatedly, I'm sure any remembrance, prayer, or act of sacrifice on behalf of our fellow Christians in Iraqi would find a ready reception by our Heavenly Father: "And your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you." (Mt 6:4b)
