....please pray for Coptic Christians in Egypt.
So far, seven Catholic Churches and fifteen Coptic Orthodox and Protestant churches were attacked in Upper Egypt and Cairo, and more churches all across Egypt have been attacked and/or burned. Alexandria is the birthplace of the Coptic Christian Church, begun with John Mark's (author of the book of Mark in the Bible) missionary visit to Egypt way back around 65 AD. Here are a couple of articles on the recent attacks: Catholic Online and Open Doors. The violence in Egypt is horrendous, and I really do not know what we can do right now besides pray. This is not the only case of persecuted Christians. All over the Middle East Christians are being pushed out and persecuted. Will you join me and pray?
"Even so, you too, when you see these things happening, recognize that He is near, right at the door."
