Archbishop of Birmingham: ‘The world is not hostile to Christians’ | CatholicHerald.co.uk.

Mgr Longley’s suggestion has prompted me to add a further element to the daily publishing of the Martyrology which will now include, as I am able, in the “Nota Bene” at the end, links to reports of Christian persecution from around the world… There are some updates to previous entries already for the past week. The news items will not necessarily be “on date” as events have happened, but they will be posted in the entry for the date of the report’s publication.

In this way perhaps, we might be prompted in our reflection on the lives of past saints, to consider those of our own generation both martyrs and confessors enduring persecution. Perhaps too, it might encourage us to share the news of the plight of our Christian brothers and sisters and prevent the suggestion of an “hiatus” among the less well-informed concerning Christian persecution around the world…
