Persecution

A short post to celebrate the freedom we have to live our catholic, Christian faith in relative peace. So many people around the world pay a great price for their faith. I have just come across this website Persecution, which makes known the suffering of ordinary people, persecuted because of ignorance and injustice. Take time out to have a look at their website here.

Oh my Lord... I just bookmarked that and will return to it. Prayers for one and all.

How sad! These episodes should make the news in our western world too ... it'll open people's eyes.

I do think, however, that a different form of persecution of Catholics is rampant in our society. Doesn't the media and the so called 'emancipated westeners' refer to us as old fashioned, homophobic, obscurantist, racist, anti-science, etc., etc. ... and a Catholic minister was refused by the European parliament because of his Catholic belief?
