Migrants, refugees, displaced people chosen for ‘Washing of the Feet’ rites: Migrants, refugees, and displaced people whose feet will be washed by Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle during Holy Thursday’s “Washing of the Feet” ceremony, will symbolize the endeavor for peace and the challenging conditions that keep peace from many people living in very difficult situations.

Displaced Kurds from Afrin Need Help, Activist says: Kurds often say they have “no friends but the mountains.” However, after the Turkish and Syrian rebel offensive took over most of the Kurdish area of Afrin in northern Syria in the last two months, they’ve been saying even the mountains cannot protect them against Turkish warplanes.
