'Pray for those who persecute you' - Article by Bishop Angaelos in the Catholic Publication 'The Tablet'

The International Catholic Weekly News publication The Tablet published an article written by His Grace Bishop Angaelos entitled “Pray for those who persecute you”

Excerpt

While their captors sought to humiliate them by saying they were “of the Cross”, these men were faithful witnesses to our Lord Jesus Christ, calling on his name in prayer while their lives were brutally taken from them.

As Christians we glory in the Cross of our Lord, and it is by no means a shame but rather an honour to be deemed his disciples. These men will not be forgotten and their death is not in vain. They are truly modern-day martyrs – those who were killed for their faith and a valiant example to us all.
