Some good news from Qatar

The first ever Catholic Church in Qatar is to be built, dedicated to our Lady of the Rosary. More details here, courtesy of Asia News. Apparently the Emir Amir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani contributed the land, having been concerned in talks with the Holy See over many years. May God and our Lady reward him for this courageous gesture which could well leave him open to attacks from others.

Great news indeed. Now we must pray that the locals can use it safely-and not just foreign nationals.
