Headline: German Day of Prayer dedicated to persecuted Christians in Syria and Iraq

“Solidarity with persecuted and oppressed Christians in our time” is the initiative of the German Bishops’ Conference that began in 2003. To this end, a Day of Prayer is held each year on December 26, the feast of the first Christian martyr, St. Stephen, to focus on a particular part of the world where Christians are discriminated against and harassed.
