ZENIT brings you news, but not only that ....
ZENIT is an agency that goes beyond news. Thanks to you, our readers spread throughout the world, ZENIT has also been able to touch a network of Christians that, through your messages and testimonies, enable us to appreciate that the Church is truly universal, and incredibly united despite her diversity. There are many who have told us that ZENIT has helped them to reinforce this wonderful feeling of belonging to the universal Church.
In some countries Christians are insulted or persecuted, in others they are free but no less ridiculed and scorned. However, these Christians are not alone and the messages that you, our readers, send to us are proof of this.
Many monasteries write to us, for example, telling us that the news we publish becomes their prayer intention, as this religious of the Assumption has, who lives in Abomey, Benin, who wrote: "ZENIT gives me news on the situation of the world and of the universal Church. ... Then I pray, either to give thanks or to intercede for situations that need justice and peace."
We are happy to be able to be an instrument of service for Christians worldwide, but to do so, we need your help!
