posted Mar 13, 2017, 6:40 AM by Dan Pittman   [ updated Mar 13, 2017, 6:56 AM ]

Today, we see throughout parts of the Middle east, Africa and Asia the brutal persecution, torture and killing of Christians. 

This month, the Knights of Columbus is urging its members and other people of faith to pray a Novena of Grace and Solidarity for Christians suffering persecution. The novena is based on a prayer in honour of St. Francis Xavier by Italian Father Marcello Mastrilli, a missionary to Japan who was martyred for the faith. Please join in praying this Novena of Grace and Solidarity, beginning on Sunday, March 12, and concluding on Monday, March 20. The novena may also be prayed any time throughout the year. See Knights of Columbus Charities for more information on how you can help relieve the suffering of persecuted Christians.
