Ecumenism of Blood


Please pray for the Coptic Christians who were killed today in a bomb attack.

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
