Post Bersih 2.0 Update

Here are some interesting news items from different sources regarding last Saturday’s Bersih 2.0 People’s Rally in K.L.:

1. The United Nations

2. Jakarta, Indonesia

3. Wall Street Journal

4. Resign the Home Minister!

A note from the Catholic Social Teaching series: A Call to Action #24:

“The Christian has the duty to take part in this search and in the organization and life of political society. As a social being, men and women build their destiny within a series of particular groupings which demand, as their completion and as a necessary condition for their development, a vaster society, one of a universal character, the political society.” –  Call to Action, #24

and a Social Justice Prayer:

Almighty and eternal God, may your grace enkindle in all of us a love for the many unfortunate people whom poverty and misery reduce to a condition of life unworthy of human beings. Arouse in the hearts of those who call you Father a hunger and thirst for social justice and for fraternal charity in deeds and in truth.

Grant, O Lord, peace to souls, peace to families, peace to our country and peace among nations. Amen.
