Memory of the Martyrs of our Time

printable version

Prayer Vigil in memory of those who,
 in these last years,
have given their life for the Gospel

During the night that the world is crossing, many witnesses to faith illuminate the walk of humanity towards Christ, dead and risen for us. This is why the memory of those who have given their lives for the Gospel is so precious and meaningful, particularly in the heart of the Holy Week. 

Following Jesus on the sorrowful road, the martyrs for faith, for charity, for reconciliation and peace help us to renew our life, indicating us the stone on which to build it.  They orient us again to the courage of choices and to the seriousness of Christian life.
