Let us pray for the persecuted and insulted Christians of Asia that the forces who inflict sufferings on Christians may come to the realization that we are all the children of one Father and that inflicting cruelties on others in the name of their faith is in fact inflicting wounds on God Himself. Listen to our prayer Jesus through the intercession of the Asian martyrs Saints Andrew Kim Taegon, Paul Chong Hasang and Companions. Amen.
The Gospels do not hesitate to put us followers of Jesus in a bad light. We, represented by the disciples, can be so dense that we miss something that evil demons know and that even a blind man can see. That is, that Jesus is the presence of the Reign of God among us.
