Bishop Ochoa Calls for Prayer for Coptic Christians

Our Lord Jesus knew that the Hosannas sung upon his entrance into Jerusalem would soon turn into cries to have him crucified. United to Christ by faith, we too know that forms of persecution remain part of living the Christian life. Although, like Christ, we do not seek to respond to violence with violence – we must continue to seek out ways to protect the weak and vulnerable among us, while addressing religious persecution that puts them in harm’s way.
