For the martyrs of our day, witnesses to Christ

The Pope Video for March

The courage of the martyrs: a witness of unwavering faith.

🙏 It is a challenging time for the Church. Recent attacks confirm that being Christian in various countries carries the risk of losing one’s life for the faith.
In The Pope Video for March, released by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, evidences that “there are more martyrs today than at the beginning of Christianity.”
Pope Francis shares the shocking story of a woman who was assassinated by terrorists, and urges us to pray for “the martyrs of our day” of the “Church today.” He explains that “The courage of the martyrs, the witness of the martyrs, is a blessing for everyone.”
In the midst of adversity, their courage enlightens our journey and reminds us of the importance of persevering in the faith. Let us pray “that those who risk their lives for the Gospel in various parts of the world might imbue the Church with their courage and missionary drive.”
