No matter what you are facing in life today, have faith that God will come through for you. Trust that His Word is always true. In Psalm 32, David calls God his “hiding place.” In other words, not only can you choose to trust God in the midst of your difficulty, you can actually hide in Him and find rest for your soul. When the circumstances of life seem overwhelming, choose to trust that God is ordering your steps. Find security in Him knowing that He’s making your crooked places straight and leading you into the everlasting life He has prepared for you!
#Repost@catholic_imagery Rome’s Colosseum was lit red in solidarity with persecuted Christians
The event is meant to draw the world's attention to those who have suffered for practicing their #faith.
In an effort to draw attention to the plight of persecuted Christians around the world, Rome’s Colosseum was bathed in red light.
The event, sponsored by Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), was held in conjunction with similar events at several churches in Syria and Iraq, including the St. Elijah Maronite Cathedral in Aleppo and the Church of St. Paul in #Mosul.
Earlier this month, Alessandro Monteduro, director of ACN Italy, said that, “illumination [of the Colosseum] will have two symbolic figures: Asia Bibi, the Pakistani Christian condemned to death for blasphemy and whose umpteenth judgment is expected to revoke the sentence; and Rebecca, a girl kidnapped by Boko Haram along with her two children when she was pregnant with a third.” “One of the children was killed,” he said, “she lost the baby she was carrying, and then became pregnant after one of the many brutalities she was subjected to by her captors.” Once she was freed and reunited with her husband, she decided she “could not hate those who caused her so much pain,” Monteduro said.
European Parliament President Antonio Tajani, who is considered a contender for next week’s election for prime minister of Italy, called the persecution of Christians a “genocide,” according to a Reuters report. “A message must be sent from this place. It is the duty of #Europe to defend these values (of religious liberty) wherever on earth they are trampled on,” Tajani said.
Last fall, ACN issued a report on religious persecution that condemned the West and the United Nations for not coming to the aid of Christians in the Middle East.

"I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father, for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.
For if you love those who love you, what recompense will you have? Do not the tax collectors do the same?
And if you greet your brothers and sisters only, what is unusual about that? Do not the pagans do the same?
So be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect." -- Matthew 5:44-48
