Celebration of World Human Rights Day - December 10, 2008

The Carmelite NGO invited individuals and groups around the world to join together in in prayer to celebrate World Human Rights Day with an emphasis on the situations of the people of Zimbabwe and others suffering violence today.

We provided a booklet with some ideas for prayer, fasting, and reflection.

The response was overwhelming. We received several hundred requests for copies of the booklet from around the world. Traffice to our website more than doubled over the previous month.

We would like to hear from you on how you or your family or community celebrated this day. Please consider making a comment. Feel free to use whatever language you wish.
