West Timor    BISHOP ASKS HIS PEOPLE TO PRAY FOR EAST TIMORESE
Bishop Antonius Pain Ratu of Atambua in predominantly Christian western Timor, Indonesia, has called on local Catholics to pray for peace in neighboring East Timor.
    "We should be ready to help them with all we have," he said.
    A day earlier Bishop Pain Ratu issued a statement on behalf of Catholics in his diocese to express concern over the prevailing violence in East Timor. Condemning recent killings in the troubled neighboring province, he called on the Indonesian government to enforce law and order and asked the international community to help resolve the conflict.
