ISIS Pope Francis

Pays tribute to today’s martyrs

29 Mar, 2015

During Palm Sunday’s celebrations, Francis pays tribute to those who have been and who are being killed for their faith, especially referring to victims of ISIS.

We think too of the humiliation endured by all those who, for their lives of fidelity to the Gospel, encounter discrimination and pay a personal price…We think too of our brothers and sisters who are persecuted because they are Christians, the martyrs of our own time. There are many of them. They refuse to deny Jesus and they endure insult and injury with dignity.
