The June Edition of ONE Now Online

ONE magazine’s June 2023 issue, now online, presents readers with an urgent call: “The Time to Act Is Now.”

On this need to act, Msgr. Peter I. Vaccari, CNEWA president, writes in his column:

“Too often, we are fooled into believing we have lots of time — lots of time left to live or lots of time to respond to a situation or a need — and we allow ourselves to be distracted. In reality, our lives are short, time passes quickly and the needs of our brothers and sisters who suffer are urgent. As with Mary, we must act without delay.”

Indeed, the needs of our brothers and sisters who suffer — some of which are featured in the June edition of ONE — are urgent.

You will read stories of struggle and survival from Syria, after devastating earthquakes earlier this year killed thousands of people. The effects of 12 years of civil war, economic collapse and natural disasters, including the recent earthquake, have left Syrian society “On Shaky Ground,” and ordinary Syrians are relying on humanitarian and church organizations for their basic needs.

Learn more about the commitment of the church in Egypt to provide “Unconditional Care” to the poor, as both poverty and health concerns increase amid inflation and economic instability.

In “A Letter From Georgia,” discover how regional and national partisan politics have put civil service organizations — including church organizations, such as Caritas Georgia — on high alert.

In “Living a Christian Life in the Land of Jesus,” meet Israeli Christians working toward greater security and recognition as members of Israeli society amid growing sociopolitical challenges.

Finally, in these and other regions where CNEWA works, you will meet people coping with intentional acts of war and violence aimed at “Erasing Identity” — the identity of a people or a nation — through the destruction of cultural and historical sites and artifacts.

We hope you will be inspired by the lives of those you will meet in this edition and be moved to support them in their urgent need.
