Retired US Cardinal on Watchful Eye in Middle East Situation

February 24th, 2011 - Comments Off

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania – Retired and resigned grand master of the Knights of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem, Cardinal John P. Foley is all eyes on the revolution in Egypt and other Middle East nations as the organization helps to raise funds for church’s works in that region.

“I can understand the current unrest — it’s an expression of desire for democracy, but I hope it doesn’t become a situation in which Christians are further discriminated against in any of these countries,” Cardinal Foley said. “The situation is so unstable there, and of course Christians are such a minority there.”
