					Fr. Patrick Meaney Launches an Appeal for Assistance to Christians in
Predominantly Non-Christian Countries




(1888PressRelease) Fr. Patrick Meaney is the president of the association Acting For Life-USA
and spiritual advisor for the foundation Impact Hope. Acting For Life-USA is a 501 (c) (3)
charitable association founded by Fr. Patrick Meaney in the United States to support
humanitarian projects in a spirit of integral development.

(1888PressRelease) - Hebbronville, Texas - Fr. Patrick Meaney, president of the association
Acting For Life-USA and spiritual advisor for the foundation Impact Hope today launched an
appeal for humanitarian assistance to Christians in economic and social difficulty in countries
where the majority of the population is non- Christian. Fr. Patrick Meaney explained that despite
much good will on the part of persons in the non-Christian majority in those countries, Christians
are still increasingly subject to social and economic pressures that force them to consider
emigration away from their homelands. This involves much spiritual, social, and economic
hardship.

"Within the present global phenomenon of increasing migration, the case of Christian minorities
is particularly poignant, because the religious dimension is such an integral part of the situation,"
said Fr. Patrick Meaney. This suggests the broader theme of the religious dimension as integrated
with social and economic development: what is referred to by recent Catholic popes as the
integral development of the human person. In conformity with the teachings of the recent popes,
the foundation Impact Hope wishes to promote integral development in our world today.

When the goal of integral development is not respected, we see situations such as that of the
Christian minorities. With the help of public support, Impact Hope wishes to provide increasing
humanitarian assistance for people in such situations, to support local associations so that they
may help people to attain happier lives within their countries of origin. When all such efforts fail,
assistance would be provided so that people may immigrate to other countries in a dignified
manner.
