Prions pour James Foley et Steve Sotloff. Let us pray.

Jim Foley et Steve Sotloff journalistes otages ont été assassinés. Lundi 8 Septembre veillée de prière à Washington DC. Let us unite our prayers worldwide on the Web.

Vous avez probablement lu les nombreux articles décrivant James comme un frère, un fils, un ami de grande valeur, aimé et admiré. James a fait ses études chez les jésuites. Sensible à la prière, il sentait que l'on priait pour lui et avait une vie de prière.

You probably heard and read about James Foley being murdered. He is described as a brother, a son, a friend of great value, a loved and admired person. James studied at the Jesuit's college. While captive, he truly felt that people were praying for him. He had an active prayer life himself since his childhood.



En tant que frères et sœurs de James en Jésus, je vous propose de vous manifester comme priant grâce au site Hozana et d'apporter ainsi un peu de réconfort à sa famille. C'est une façon concrète de montrer notre soutien à sa famille.

As James's brothers and sisters in Christ, I ask you to join the prayer on the Internet via It would be a concrete way to show our support to his family.


Seigneur nous te prions et te supplions de protéger la vie de tous les otages dans le monde. Comble les de ta paix et ton amour.

Lord, may  Steven Sotloff and all the hostages be set free. Please protect them and give them your peace and love.


Dernière lettre de James à ses parents. Il avait demandé à un otage de la mémoriser alors qu'il allait être libéré. Below is James's last letter to his parents. Since all of his previous letters had been destroyed, he asked a hostage about to be released to memorize and repeat it to his family which he was able to do.




Message de la maman de James.

A message from Jim's mom, Diane Foley: We have never been prouder of our son Jim. He gave his life trying to expose the world to the suffering of the Syrian people. We implore the kidnappers to spare the lives of the remaining hostages. Like Jim, they are innocents. They have no control over American government policy in Iraq, Syria or anywhere in the world. We thank Jim for all the joy he gave us. He was an extraordinary son, brother, journalist and person. Please respect our privacy in the days ahead as we mourn and cherish Jim.


AUGUST 26th, 6 pm, PRAYER VIGIL for Jim in the Wisconsin

A Prayer for Journalists St. Francis de Sales, patron saint of writers and journalists

Almighty God,

Strengthen and direct, we pray,

the will of all whose work it isto write what many read,

and to speak where many listen.


May we be bold to confront evil and injustice:

understanding and compassionate of human weakness;

rejecting alike the half-truth which deceives,

and the slanted word which corrupts.


May the power which is ours, for good or ill,

always be used with honesty and courage,

with respect and integrity,

so that when all here has been written, said and done,

we may, unashamed, meet Thee face to face.
