The Secret Faith Of Saudi Catholics

Zenit has an informative interview with Camille Eid, a professor at the University of Milan and scholar on the churches in the Middle East. In the article, Eid talks candidly about Wahhabi Islam in Saudi Arabia and its severe restrictions on all aspects of faith -- such as worship; learning, expressing, and talking about one's faith -- in non-Wahhabi religions, including Christianity. The interview titled "Living in Secret in Saudi Arabia,"[1] which is taken from the television program Where God Weeps, is eye-opening as to the strong faith of the Christian community there (and of the Catholic community in particular) -- something we Christians in other parts of the world can certainly learn from.

Please keep the people of Saudi Arabia in your prayers. We are all God's children.
