Witness (7) Martyrs - missionaries March 24

 

Already for last 22 years this day of March 24 we remember the 'MISSIONARIES - MARTYRS' around the world.

Indeed, this is just the top of the iceberg of disciples - missionaries of Jesus killed every year for their faith witness & proclamation in many parts of the world. Since 1980 the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples (Propaganda Fide) counts some 1100+ 'martyrs - pastoral agents' all around the world. In past few years the majority are killed in Latin America and are priests.

However, we know, that at least some 50.000 Christians are killed every year for the confession of their faith and their life-witness to Jesus Christ.

This day of discernment for the new Rector Major of the Salesians, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit we try to select the leader of radical testimony to the Gospel for next 6 years. Under the protection of Mary, Help of Christians (=March 24) and with Her help!

The comment of Pope Francis gives us a good indication to point to the essentials:

'We remember those missionaries who in all simplicity and withouth many noise are working every day for the Gospel and even giving their life every day for Christ' (World Mission Day 2013)
