Pope Francis spoke of the last Coptic Martys as the "ecumenism of blood". Although we Catholics may be sacramentally separated from the Coptic Orthodox we still have the same faith. May the witness and martyrdom of all Christians stew then our Faith and perseverance
May the prayers of all the Coptic martyrs strengthen all Christians to profess the Lordship of Christ even in the face of death.
On this Palm Sunday may all Christians remember that we are called to follow Jesus into death and be faithful witnesses HOSANNA!! MARANATHA!
