About Persecution

It is without a doubt that persecution of the Church (and the faithful) is coming, and in fact is already here, as Throwback points out. I came across a prayer by the deceased Patriarch of Serbia which you should read:

“O Lord, how many are the foes who war against us and say: ‘There is no help for them from God or from man.’ Lord, reach out Thy hand to us that we remain Thy people, both in faith and in works. If we must suffer, may it be on the road to Thy justice and Thy truth, and not because of our injustice or hatred toward anyone. Let us all say fervently, Lord have mercy.”

Let the Church suffer because she proclaims God's truth, not because of our sins.
