Dear Confreres,

I ask your prayers for Zimbabwe and for our brethren there at this critical time.

You may aware that there are multiple reports of shootings, violence, looting and indiscriminate beatings.

The government has closed down all social media and we cannot contact the confreres by internet or telephone. 

The Zimbabwe Bishops' Conference has issued a statement, although they cannot get it out on the internet. Fr. General is also very aware of the situation and although on the way to World Youth Day in Panama, will communicate about the situation in the coming days.

In the meantime, I ask that you invite your parishioners, families and friends to pray for a resolution to the conflict in Zimbabwe and for peace.

I will obviously keep you updated if I get any news, and trust that all our confreres are safe.

In Christ the Redeemer,

Ronald J. McAinsh, C.Ss.R.
