May their martyrdom teach the non-negotiable values of Christianity, O God, that we can hear through the voice of the blood shed by the martyrs in the continent of Asia to pave the way for a new heaven and new earth among the millions of people who have a heritage of diversity that infused by the blood of the martyrs this diversity may become a powerful means for union of minds and hearts in love instead of divisions born of hatred and hostilities. Listen to our prayer through the intercession of Saint Augustine Zhao Rong and Companions. 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.
