Our Share in Persecution

"Lord Jesus, you foretold that we would share in the persecutions that brought you to a violent death. The Church formed at the cost of your precious blood is even now conformed to your Passion; may it be transformed, now and eternally, by the power of your resurrection."

~Psalm-prayer, Liturgy of the Hours, Vol III, p. 1213 n
Lord, may you receive much glory from the persecutions of your faithful ones! Amen+
