God Bless Father Thomas Uzhunnalil

Again, if you get your news from the Television "All Trump, All the Time" media, you might have missed this gut-wrenching story.  In another freakish exception to the rule, Fr. Uzhunnalil was kidnapped by ISIS after they murdered four nuns at a seniors facility, was tortured, and then was crucified on Good Friday.

This is the first I've heard of it, and I follow print media as well.  It might be that this is now just being confirmed.  The story is dated March 28, but so far, I've not seen a single report on the news.  In any event, prayers be with him, those who loved him, and all Christians who are dying by the thousands and those dying by the tens of thousands in the face of Islamic violence and terror.

We are entering an age of persecution.  The Left seeks to eradicate our standing in the Dying West, and Islam is mounting attacks and killing believers by the thousands.  The remaining Communist states are increasing their open willingness to oppress and even imprison Christians who run afoul of their governments.  With the loss of standing in the last civilization capable of checking the all out oppression and persecution of believers, don't expect there to be any significant checks to the trend any time soon.

When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, "How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"  Then a white robe was given to each of them: and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.    The Revelation, 6,9-11.
