Shabhaz Bhatti: A martyr in Parliament
We come today to pray for a righteous man, the Honorable Shahbaz Bhatti, who died early, at age 42. - Raymond D'Souza, First Things

There is much wickedness in Pakistan today. The Christian disciple is not asked to pretend otherwise. We pray with eyes wide open in the words of the Psalmist, ‚Äúeven though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, no evil do I fear.‚ÄĚ The Psalms teach us an ancient wisdom, namely that the righteous man is often opposed, and that in this world the wicked often prosper.
The martyr‚Äôs death of Shahbaz Bhatti is not something unique to our time or to his country. Christian disciples of every time and place have followed their Master to the Cross and shared in His passion and death.
The homily delivered at a St. Thomas More Society memorial Mass for assassinated Pakistani cabinet minister Shabaz Bhatti. The Mass was offered in the Sean O‚ÄôSullivan Chapel on March 7, 2011, Parliament Hill, Ottawa.
