At the sight of the wolves, they do not run

St. Francis Xavier, Patron of the Missions,
pray for the missionaries in Libya!

Everyone is evacuating from violence-torn Libya, but the missionaries stay. "Bishop Sylvester Magro, Apostolic Vicar of Benghazi, said that the principal concern of the Catholic Church 'is to be close to the sick and suffering, so our contribution to the events is invaluable because of our closeness to the people.'” These words remind me of Jesus who, as the Good Shepherd, does not flee at the sight of the wolves. God bless the missionaries!
