Food and the Holidays

As we gather with our families to give thanks for God’s many blessings, we take a moment to remember those less fortunate than we are. Nick Chakos, Executive Director of FOCUS North America, and long-time board member Theodora Polamalu join Fr. Chris in discussing the urgent need in this country, as well as several FOCUS programs that are making a huge difference in people’s lives. But first, many of us may not realize that the Thanksgiving feast we look forward to is a source of severe anxiety for others. Marina Abdel Malak shares her experience as a recovering anorexic with us, offering tips about how we can be sensitive to those with eating disorders or dietary restrictions during the holiday season. Marina also shares her insights at Anorexia Recovery.

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
