     | 2,274 views

    Christians were persecuted by the Jews, then by the Romans, and by the Nazis and the Communists, and by fundamentalist Muslims and others today. Why should we in the West or US, Canada, Autsralia or New Zealand be excused from suffering for our faith?

    How to find encouragement when everything seems to be against me.

     | 2,481 views

    Called to live a beatitude kind of life, the hard reality is anyone who lives out the first seven beatitudes is guaranteed at some point to experience the eighth.
