Gospel Nugget 94: Strength in Weakness

We’ve just celebrated the Conversion of St. Paul, one of the greatest saints who ever lived. Paul, as with all the saints, is both an inspiration and a model. Intensely human, sometimes controversial and even difficult, he gives us all hope. This week we look at two ways St. Paul can inspire and help us on our Christian journey.

GIVE HOPE WITH NASAREAN.ORG

Nasarean.org, a 501c 3 charity, was founded by Father Benedict Kiely in August, 2014. Based in Stowe, VT, Nasarean.org has a twofold purpose – both parts equally important – aid and advocacy for Persecuted Christians throughout the world, but with a particular focus on the Middle East – the “Cradle of Christianity”.

Aid

Initially through donations and the Arabic “N” or “Nun” materials, Nasarean.org supported the feeding and housing of the numerous Christians refugees in Iraq and Syria. Nasarean.org’s unique role in aiding persecuted Christians to stay in their countries is supporting and encouraging mini micro-financing to create small businesses – what we call “Project Jonah” - to help families rebuild their lives, feel empowered, and break the culture of dependency.

Advocacy

Advocacy is the principal work of Fr. Ben’s priestly ministry and includes, among many things – writing, media, speaking - educating and informing audiences about the widespread assault on Christians which is, according to Pope Francis, worse than at any time since the first centuries of the Church.
