Pope: “I Wept for the Crucified Christians in Syria”

In his Friday morning Mass, Pope Francis talked about the Christians who were crucified in Syria by yihadists, for refusing to reject their faith.

Even though it may be surprising to many, he said, Christians are indeed still persecuted.

POPE FRANCIS
“We see the joy of so many of our brothers and sisters who have experienced this joy in history. The joy of being deemed worthy to suffer assaults in the name of Jesus. But today, there are still many! In some countries, if you carry the Gospel, you can go to jail. You can’t carry a cross, because you’ll have to pay a fine. But still, the heart rejoices.”

Reflecting on the Gospel readings, he encouraged Christians to not give into jealousy, describing evil as the son of the devil.
