Aid To Church In Need Calls For Prayers For Myanmar On Coup Anniversary

The papal foundation Aid to the Church in Need has called for prayers Feb. 1, to show solidarity with the people of Myanmar on the first anniversary of the military coup.

"It has been a year of terror and suffering, which has disrupted the course of this Asian country. The response of the military leadership to the massive demonstrations against its abuse of power has been ruthless and brutal," said a statement by the agency, which has been assisting persecuted Christians.

Aid to the Church in Need said the day of prayer would remember the dead and intercede for the innocent civilian population, especially internally displaced people.

"Let us pray for all these thousands on the move, many of them at risk of starving," it said.
