- Father Matthias comments that today's liturgy calls martyrdom a "privilege." He comments on the continuing horrors in the Middle East, its potential to spread to the West, and the place of violence in Islamic theology and history. We must look to the example of constancy that our brothers in the Middle East are giving, and strive to spiritual prepare for the possibility of being asked to do the same. Finally, let us have recourse to the Rosary, for "Rosary Crusades" have proved themselves as a decisive weapon in the fight against the forces of darkness.
