Good evening and welcome to Perspectives Daily.
Happy Easter to you all. We’ve made it through Holy Week and the Triduum and are now in the Eastertide season. For the next 50 days until Pentecost Sunday we’ll celebrate the Resurrection of Christ. Over the past week, from Palm Sunday right up to Easter Sunday, the Pope had some very important messages for us and for the world. I have for you now highlights from Holy Week 2018.
As part of its ongoing support of persecuted Christians in the Middle East, the Knights of Columbus, announced last week a commitment of more than $1 million dollars to Iraqi and Syrian Christians for Easter.
The announcement that came during Holy Week includes financial aid of to the rebuilding the Iraqi town of Karamles, a predominantly Christian town, that was overrun by ISIS. Many of the cities homes and churches were desecrated before it was liberated last year. Here is the entire video:
Now to date, the Knights of Columbus has committed almost $19 million dollars in aid to Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq and Syria since 2014.

That is all that we have time for today. Join us again tomorrow, when I bring you more news and stories from the Perspectives of a Catholic Lens.
