Blessed are the Persecuted

We all endure some form of suffering if we are Christian. Martyrdom is one of the most challenging to come to terms with – especially in our modern times. To help us draw closer to those who have been martyred and are being persecuted for the faith in the Middle East and throughout the world, please join Veronica Hughes, the Holy Maccabees, St. Maximos the Confessor, and St. Nicholai Velimirovic for a better understanding of the Lord’s words, “Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
