The sisters in Pakistan

Zenit had an interview that dealt with the situation in Pakistan and mentioned the Daughters of St. Paul bookshop there. It said:
"In the specific instance of the Daughters of St Paul bookshop, there was an elaborate plan to trap the institution and lay a frenzy of charges against it ranging from blasphemy to copyright violation, promotion of illegal screening of biblical films to active proselytizing. But the plan came to naught because the accusers could not prove that the sisters were producing biblical movies in large quantities, or selling them under the counter and out in the street. Clearly that was not the case. It would be a punishable offense had it been the case. "

The situation is tense but fortunately nothing more has happened. Please pray for them.
