The PETITION

Recent efforts for this year's (2005) Easter Feast Date unification:
 
We informed the office of AL Raee-Saleh (a tremendous prayer network  in USA) about our project.  They welcomed the idea of prayer, and they inserted this request in their existing intentions.

The Soufanieh Family in Canada (Montreal) inserted the prayer intention and an approach in addressing this intention in the website dedicated to Our Lady of Soufanieh through Association Notre-Dame-de-Soufanieh in Canada.  A letter to the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops is being prepared for this intention.  This same letter will also be sent to all Oriental Patriarchs.  They ask them to specifically pray for this intention.
 
We informed many Priests, clergymen and Patriarchs about our prayer project.  They all welcomed the idea.  We expect around 10,000 people (including convents) to pray for a unified Easter Feast.
 
We contacted the Holy See Apostolic Nuncio in Syria.  He welcomed and encouraged the project.  He requested from us to write to the Holy Father and to to attach our petitions to our letter.
 
We contacted The Taizé International Ecumenical Community (France).  They are composed of a group of nuns and volunteers whose purpose in life is prayer and service.  They have several prayer centers around the world. We are waiting for their feedback.
 
We contacted Communauté du Chemin Neuf through their office in Lebanon (father Fadi Jandah).  They constitute a tremendous prayer network with 155 nodes around the world.  We are waiting for their feedback.

We contacted Télé-Lumière in Lebanon.  We were promised a prompt advertisement telecasting for the prayer on TV, and this will encourage the Lebanese to pray for this intention during the week of January 18th. 

We are also working Radio Al-Mahaba in Lebanon in order to broadcast our prayer intentions during Unity Week.

We requested from many religious TV broadcasters to support our project.  To-date, only SAT 7 replied positively.

The Soufanieh family in Damascus (Syria) is preparing a poster promoting the prayer formula.  It will be distributed at the church's entrance doors during the week of January 18th.  They are also working on getting the prayer message broadcasted on the Lebanese Noorsat Satellite Network during Unity Week.
