March for Indian Christians

Action: please support the march if you can. The persecution of Christians in India by Hindu militants must not be ignored by Christians in the West. There are many Catholics in India, yet this protest is being promoted by evangelical Protestants.

Post-colonial embarrassment is no excuse to ignore the sufferings of our fellow Christians in India, or the Christians being persecuted by Muslims in Iraq, by Buddhists in Sri Lanka, or Communists in China.

From Christian Voice: a march of witness has been arranged by Indian Christian Concern in central London on Saturday 4th October 2008.

Petitions will be handed at 10 Downing Street and at the India High Commission, the final destination, in order to highlight the plight of our Christian brothers and sisters.

The assembly point is Richmond Terrace SW1A off Victoria Embankment just north of Westminster Tube. The procession will start at 2:00pm. Please pray for the brothers and sisters facing persecution and also forward this to ask people to pray to join the protest march in London. Scripture says we all suffer if one part of the body suffers. It would be good if Christian leaders from all churches would join this initiative. Please encourage those you know to come.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
