Meriam Ibrahim released

When Father Thomas Konopka asked me to write a blog post about Meriam Ibrahim last week, I had no idea that the end result would come so quickly. However, I am happy to inform you that she has been released from prison.
If you were one of the people who signed the petition, or called a legislator, or prayed for her release, “Thank you!” (And if you were not, may this encourage you to do something the next time a situation arises.)
This is just one example of the power that we have when we add our voices to those of others, and even when we pray in the silence of our own rooms.
