CAIRO (AP) — A video purporting to show the mass beheading of Coptic Christian hostages was released Sunday by militants in Libya affiliated with the Islamic State group.
The killings raise the possibility that the Islamic militant group — which controls about a third of Syria and Iraq in a self-declared caliphate — has established a direct affiliate less than 500 miles (800 kilometers) from the southern tip of Italy. One of the militants in the video makes direct reference to that possibility, saying the group now plans to "conquer Rome." - Story

Do not sell your birthright for all the world. No matter what compromise, what alternative lifestyle is offered you, do not surrender your soul. Keep the faith. Put no trust in princes, in riches, in comfort, developed doctrine, or false peace. Pray. Pray. Pray.
Queen of Martyrs! Pray for us!
