The Catholic Defender: The problem in Egypt

It is now day 12 of major upheaval in Egypt as violence continues on the streets of the Major cities.

The news media have been attacked to include Fox News. The concern is what is going to happen, who is going to come out of this the top dog?

Will it be Muslim Extremists who want to attack Israel?

Is this a grass roots uprising due to the hunger out there.

The average person is reported to make 2 dollars a day, is this a matter that the Egyptian Government has not looked out for it's people?

The Prophet Isaiah today has a special message for this crisis: "Thus says the Lord: Share your bread with the hungry, shelter the oppressed and the homeless; clothe the naked when you see them, and do not turn your back on your own. Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your wound shall quickly be healed; your vindication shall go before you, and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer, you shall cry for help, and he will say:Here I am! If you remove from your midst oppression, false accusation and malicious speech; if you bestow your bread on the hungry and satisfy the afflicted; then light shall rise for you in the darkness, and the gloom shall become for you like midday" (Isaiah 58:7-10 (73A).

This hints to Jesus words found in Matthew 25:31-46, this is the only answer for the people of Egypt. Lasting peace to take shape must include bringing the Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, his rightful place in the hearts of the people of Egypt.

People who are faithful to God bring hope to any situation. Please pray for the people of Egypt, there is much suffering there and the recent events possibly can cause a backlash that can affect far more than the Egyptian boarders. Pray for Israel as this does not abode will for them.

Like Daniel in the Lions Den they are potentially in much danger:
