Suffering For Christ...

Fr. Stephen Brown doesn't blog, but he posted the following to his Facebook Page, and I found it extremely moving. Christians are suffering for their faith right now, and the mainstream media are silent. Fr. Brown wrote:

"Here is my (amateurish) attempt to raise awareness of what our fellow Christians are undergoing in so many places. This video is not intended to arouse hatred or resentment, but to motivate people to do what they can to help. It is very gory in places, since this is the reality of things. Don't watch it if you're squeamish."

But actually, squeamishness can't be allowed to excuse silence on this issue any more - I think that the more people are made to realise that this brutality is going on, the better.

Things are difficult for Christians (and especially Catholics) in the West (and getting more so) but nothing like this... yet. Pray for our fellow Christians around the world.

Thank you for posting that. People tend to think "oh, most martyrs met their fate a long time ago. It's happening TODAY.

Good grief.

Thank you for waking us up. May God have mercy.

In Christ
