Persecution Fallout

Persecution of Christians is a fact backed by sad statistics as well as ground-level stories. Sad though it is, persecution of Christians is “potentially a boon to ecumenical relations. All denominations today have their martyrs, and all are more or less equally at risk.” So noted Mr. John L. Allen Jr. in his All Things Catholic post yesterday. Mr. Allen also touched on strengthening the role of women in the church; the pope’s visit to the seat of the Italian government; and a scandal too bizarre to “make up.”
