St. Charles Lwanga and Companions, Ugandan Martyrs BIG C CATHOLICS - June 2, 2017 ... reminds us of what faith can cost, and helps us avoid being complacent or taking for granted our own freedom to worship God as we see fit. Martyrdom is not something that ended with the reign of the Roman Emperor Constantine in the 4th century; it is a fact even in modern times. One such story of a martyr's courage comes to us from the country of Uganda, where 22 men and young boys suffered violent deaths rather than submit to a ruler whose demands were contrary to what they ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/06/st-charles-lwanga-and-companions.html

Pray for the New Coptic Martyrs! BYZANTINE, TEXAS - May 27, 2017 ... target well. The Monastery of St. Samuel the Confessor, which I visited a decade ago, is very hard to reach. One hundred and ten miles on the Cairo Luxor desert road, you make a right-hand turn and for the next 17 miles drive on an unpaved road. The single lane forces cars to drive slowly, and, as the only route leading to the monastery, the victims were guaranteed to be Copts. Friday is a day off in Egypt, and church groups regularly take trips there. Outside of a few ...http://byztex.blogspot.com/2017/05/pray-for-new-coptic-martyrs.html

Sts. Cletus and Marcellinus A CATHOLIC LIFE - April 26, 2017 ... "Two bright stars appear this day on the ecclesiastical cycle, proclaiming the glory of our Jesus, the Conqueror of death. Again they are two pontiffs, and martyr pontiffs [a reference to the feast day of Sts. Soter and Caius on April 22]. Cletus leads us to the very commencement of the Church, for he was a disciple of Peter, and his second successor in the See of Rome. Marcellinus was a witness of the great persecution under Diocletian; he governed the Church ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/myST/~3/0dbpM7F6hxM/sts-cletus-and-marcellinus.html

Father Rutler: Let Us Open the Gates of Our Hearts SUNLIT UPLANDS - April 9, 2017 ... King of Glory entered Jerusalem, with children joining adults in waving palm branches. But on the same day, that King wept over Jerusalem for the indifference of most of its people. A few days ago I spent some good hours in the company of David Alton, with whom I have often corresponded, while he was visiting our city. Now Lord Alton of Liverpool, he has been a major champion of pro-life causes in the House of Lords and has promoted awareness of the genocide of Christians in ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/SunlitUplands/~3/s6PSZcsKUjs/father-rutler-let-us-open-gates-of-our.html

The Roman Amphitheater of Pola and Persecution Denial GLORIA ROMANORUM - March 30, 2017 ... his tale in the Roman city of Pola (modern day Pula in Croatia), whose fantastically preserved Roman ruins exist to this day. Indeed, the climax of the novel takes place in the magnificent amphitheater of Pola, whose size and state of preservation rivals even the great Colosseum in Rome, as can be seen in the photo above. And indeed, we know of at least one martyrdom that took place in this amphitheater, namely that of Germanus in AD 284. So ...http://gloriaromanorum.blogspot.com/2017/03/the-roman-amphitheater-of-pola-and.html

The response of Pope St Sergius I (687-701) was not only a defiant refusal to recognize or approve the synod; he also added the Agnus Dei to the Mass, "a protest against canon 82 of the Synod in Trullo, which forbade the symbolic representation of the Savior in the form of a Lamb." (Msgr. Louis Duchesne, in his critical edition of the Liber Pontificalis, quoted in the Catholic Encyclopedia's article on the Agnus Dei .) Pope Sergius also added this ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/hGjElAZKl6o/raising-dead-in-lent.html
