Pope Francis on persecution of Christians: International community cannot be inactive

2015-04-07

Pope Francis once again denounced the persecution of Christians in strong terms. This  time, his words came during the Easter Monday Regina Coeli address.

POPE FRANCIS
"What must continue on the part of all is the spiritual journey of prayer, intense prayer; the concrete participation and tangible help in the defense and protection of our brothers and sisters, who are persecuted, exiled, killed, beheaded, for the only reason of being a Christian.”

Speaking to the Shalom Catholic Community, the Pope said it was "unacceptable” for Christians to lose their lives simply because of their faith.

POPE FRANCIS
"They are our martyrs today and they are many; we are able to say that they are more numerous than in the first centuries.”

The Pope called on the international community to "not look the other way” or be "silent and inactive” while Christians remain threatened throughout the world.
