Pray for the security of our Christian brothers and sisters and for PEACE!

Time magazine this year declared the Protester to be the 'Person of the Year' - and certainly 2011 was an extraordinary year of protests and revolutions. But it was not the first year to be noted as such - and one event that began a revolution that continues to this day was the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem, which we celebrated last Sunday.

The revolution that Jesus began was not begun with riots and violence, but with a revolution of grace and peace.

Christian brothers and sisters of ours shed their blood and died this Christmas, as did St Stephen whose martyrdom we recently celebrated and the Holy Innocents whose sacrifice we celebrate today.

Let us pray for the security of our Christian brothers and sisters and for PEACE!
