First Sunday of Luke

On this Sunday, we commemorate Martyr Phocas.

The Master hath established thee as a divinely-radiant luminous, and spiritual sun shining upon the multitude of the Church’s faithful, O glorious Martyr Phocas; for He hath accepted thy life, faith and contests as fragrant myrrh, since He alone is abundant in mercy.

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
