Archbishop of Strasbourg: I Hope the Pope’s Words Will Be Well Understood

Speaking with ZENIT in the lead-up to the Pope’s visit to Strasbourg today, Archbishop Jean-Pierre Grallet said he expected the Holy Father would not “flatter the Europeans” but rather “reawaken consciences.” The two speeches given by Pope Francis are in line with the archbishop’s expectations.

Here is a …

The cashbox is empty! … ZENIT depends on its readers!

Dear reader,

We have just begun our annual fundraising campaign. Each year we invite our readers to participate firsthand in keeping ZENIT afloat.

The funds we receive during these annual drives are absolutely vital for ZENIT. The resources collected in the coming days will be the funds that keep ZENIT functioning through 2015.

Just to give you a sense of how important this campaign is:

Right now in ZENIT’s bank accounts, there is a sufficient balance to cover the costs of November.

But Providence has allowed us to become accustomed to this pattern.

It’s true, right now we do not have the cash we need to continue operating for more than a few more days — but we have you and more than a half million more subscribers. And your generosity has always sustained us.

Now in our 17th year, we can say that your generosity is capable of moving mountains. You, our readers, are the ones responsible for the survival of ZENIT.

For 16 years, we have held our annual fundraising campaign.

Though the situation of our bank accounts today seems startling, perhaps the bigger surprise is that for 16 straight years, the reality has been the same: At the beginning of each fundraising campaign, the accounts are practically empty and then, thanks to readers’ generosity, ZENIT receives just what it needs to make it through another year.

Thanks be to God, in ZENIT’s 17 years, we have never had to take out a loan or pay recourse to financial risks.

Despite the constant and rapid growth of the agency, (and the increase in operating costs growth implies), Providence has never allowed us to go without the funds that are strictly necessary.

From the ZENIT team, as we witness this year after year, THANK YOU!

And what makes this gift a reality is the generosity of each one of you.

Today, make a gift to ZENIT.

To make a donation by credit card, check or bank transfer:

Help us cover our costs for another year.

Warm regards,

The ZENIT Team

Donations to ZENIT are tax deductible in the United States, Mexico, Spain, France and Germany.

We are counting on you!
