Christian Persecution in the Middle East

“We are not a new philosophy but a divine revelation. That’s why you can’t just exterminate us; the more you kill the more we are. The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church”.

Tertullian
Apologeticum, 197 A.D.

It is hard to comprehend or imagine the terrible suffering and persecution that many Christians are enduring through out the world by the hands of radical Islamists and yet as it was during the time of the Roman persecution today many Christians are being martyred for their faith…

Perhaps the greater tragedy is that we are so inebriated with our own problems that we hardly notice. Please pray for our fellow brothers and sisters who are suffering of the Cross.

St. Ignatious of Antioch pray for us!
