Blessed Teresa of Calcutta frequently said that the worst poverty is not knowing Christ, and that if we would just open our eyes and look around, we’d see that people all over the world are hungry for God.
Here at ZENIT, we seek to draw people closer to Christ by relaying news of the Pope and the Church — news that is sent to more than half a million e-mail inboxes every day, in seven different languages.
Given the enormous needs of the world, our mission to communicate the message of Christ and of his Church through ZENIT’s news service may seem to be a small project, and it is. But it’s a small project with great outreach, and even greater potential.
Bishops, priests and other religious use ZENIT articles in their pastoral activities; catechism and religion teachers use ZENIT in their classrooms; friends and relatives send ZENIT to others who may have fallen away from the faith.
Thanks to capitalizing on resources and the support of thousands of readers from around the world:
– Today, ZENIT is sent by email to 520,000 people
– Tomorrow, it is impossible to imagine how far we will go, if the support of our readers continues to expand.
There are many ways to be a committed member of the ZENIT team: your promotion of ZENIT and your prayers are always appreciated.
Another way is to help with whatever you can in our current fund-raising campaign!
As you know, ZENIT has no other form of funding than its readers’ donations.
For the English edition, with its 120,000 e-mail subscribers (not counting visitors to its Web page), we propose a specific goal: to collect $350,000.
Can we count on your support?
