Every one condemns the violence but no one can stop it. An elderly Christian couple were just martyred/murdered in their home this past Saturday - story here.
Life goes on while martyrs bleed in witness to the faith - in fidelity to Christ. I can not understand my lukewarmness, my indifference, and my worrying about petty conflicts over the faith... when real Christians are dying.
May the holy wonder-working bishop, St. Nicholas of Myra intercede for us and most especially, come to the aid of those Christians persecuted by Islam.
St. Nicholas of Myra, pray for us.
