We received a report that Pakistani police raided a Catholic bookstore in Karachi. The police confiscated about 150 CD's and videos.
The report said in part:
"The archdiocese owns the store, which the Daughters of St. Paul operate, reported UCA News, an Asian church news agency based in Thailand. The raid was conducted June 13, a day after the Urdu-language newspaper Nawa-i-Waqt ran a story alleging that Christians were selling CDs and videotapes about the lives of the prophets."
Our sisters in Pakistan face a big challenge evangelizing in a Muslim society. The state places certain restrictions on them (they are basically only allowed to evangelize other Christians, as it is forbidden to try and convert Muslims to Christianity.) Please join us in our prayers for them.
