Act in Time: Protecting Imperiled Christians in Ancient and Other Lands

Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship, and observance.

  • THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS

Today too, in order to bear witness to light and to truth, the Church experiences, in different places, harsh persecution, up to the supreme sacrifice of martyrdom. How many of our brothers and sisters in faith endure abuse and violence, and are hated because of Jesus! I shall tell you something: today’s martyrs are more numerous with respect to those of the first centuries.

  • POPE FRANCIS, FEAST OF ST. STEPHEN, 2016

Today almost 300 million Christians around the world, or one out of every seven, live in a country where they suffer some form of persecution.There is a renewed determination by Islamic fundamentalists to establish the Caliphate and eradicate Christianity from Ancient lands in the Middle East. In China, persecution of Christians has intensified, with pastors and priests being arrested as part of “sinicizing” the church because of the Communist Party determination to impose Chinese cultural identity to stay in power. Crushing restrictions and regulations on religion are all seriously limiting freedom of worship while, simultaneously, Africa’s young Christian communities are now in the cross hairs of Islamic terrorists as part of an ongoing project to exterminate Christians in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Time to Act to save these communities is Now.
