Meet your new friends in Christ, Priest & Victim

Rev. Abba (Father) Abraha Baraki, the uncle of "our patient", Assefa Hailu Baraki, visits his nephew during dialysis at St. Yared Hospital in the great metropolis of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in the "Horn of Africa"

Meet your new friends in Christ, Priest & Victim.

Abba (Father) Abraha Baraki is an Eastern Catholic missionary priest who offers the Divine Liturgy (holy Mass) for the intentions of benefactors of NCCL’s “Operation Mission Stipends“. The friends & benefactors of the NCCL apostolate are remembered every day by Father in his sacred prayers, begging Christ to save you in his mercy.

In the photo above we see him visiting his ailing nephew, Assefa, now receiving kidney dialysis and surviving thanks to generous benefactors like you, “Looking East”, and to the unfailing concern of another Uncle-Priest, Father Tesfamariam Baraki of Washington, D.C.

You might ask, how does this make you and them “friends in Christ, Who is Priest & Victim”? …

“Lord, when did we see thee … a stranger, or … sick or in prison, and came to thee?”

“And [Christ] the king answering, shall say to them: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me.” Mt. xxv: 37-40
