May the sacrifice of martyrs, Lord, bring new life to Church in China amidst intimidations and threats that continue even today that the concerned authorities and people in this vast nation may realize Catholic Church’s commitment to people’s liberation and wellbeing rooted in the commandment of love we have got from you through your Apostles. We make this prayer through the intercession of Saint Gregory Grassi and Companions whose blood is crying out for justice from the Chinese soil. Amen
We can all understand the argument the disciples had. We spend much of our lives seeking status, protecting our status, or mourning the loss of status.
