"Our First Obligation Is Prayer and Solidarity"
Bishop Gregory's Statement on War with Iraq

Indonesians Showing Interest in Catholicism, Say Bishops
Bishop Petrus Canisius Mandagi of Ambon in the Molucca Islands, the scene of Protestant-Muslim clashes in recent years, said the number of Catholics in his area is growing.

"During the clashes," he explained, "the local Catholic communities upheld the dignity of every person, irrespective of religion, and, rather than siding with one of the parties in conflict, they worked to reach reconciliation. This witness has led many to want to know more about the Catholic faith."
