A Croatian Catholic website has reported that two Christian teenagers in Syria were crucified on April 29 for refusing to convert to Islam, where countless others have also been put to death by Muslims.
The Christians were given the choice of “Islam or death,” said Sister Raghida, former head of a Catholic school in Damascus. Muslims came to the two teenagers and said, “So you want to die as a teacher in whom you trust? Please choose: either to renounce Jesus or you will be crucified!” When BOTH BOYS REFUSED, THEY WERE PUT TO DEATH. One of them was crucified in front of his father, who was then murdered, as well.
The nun said that Jihadists entered the city of Maalula and started killing men, women and children. They beheaded many and then kicked their heads around like soccer balls. Even pregnant women were martyred, their unborn babies cut from their wombs and hung from trees.
Many of the Christians remaining in Syria either do not have the money to leave or have been denied visas. Yet Sister Raghida says they are remaining strong throughout all the hopelessness, and said that after the massacres, “We celebrated the Mass for the dead, and our prayer was even stronger… The Lord will not abandon us…”
No, the Righteous Judge, Jesus the Only Christ, Lord of Lords and King of Kings will NOT abandon you! Even though “Pope” Francis refused to say the name of Syria, for fear of offending them!, (God is no respecter of persons and His true Church would scream the truth from the housetops,) he did she a tear, how nice. The Vatican has not asked for the help of the United States of America, or gone to the powers in Syria on behalf of Christians. Only mild platitudes about “persecutions in non Christian nations.” Well, I hate to break it to you, but their are NO Christian nations left! We wait as we fall into the abyss. How terrible will be the coming persecutions, begun at “Vatican II,” when communism was not condemned, nor even mentioned. These are sins of omission and the True Church has gone underground.
Remember, as in the times of Saint Athanatius, “They have the buildings, but we have the Faith!” Pray for our brothers and sisters in Muslim lands that are being terribly persecuted and ask, no DEMAND that your pastors preach on this!
God have mercy on us in Jesus Name! God, protect those who stand for Your Son and save us from weak, traitorous churchmen in positions of power. Amen.
