It has been made clear to us that we live in times when there is a heroic need for earnest prayer.

More than one credible Christian research website has related that the number of Christian martyrs in Iraq, Syria, Indonesia and South Sudan is on the verge of doubling over 2013 figures. These martyrologies even say that it is entirely possible that one Christian dies for his or her faith.....

EVERY 5 MINUTES ("Lord Jesus, have mercy.") 

......somewhere in the world....today. Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, has said that there are more martyrs today than at any time in human history.

Following the below link you will find a Litany of Martyrs Novena to download, pray or print-out, and I am passing it on to you for your prayer life. I have condensed it into one page with double columns for printing. It is a Word Document.  Also, scroll down to find the litany in text, on this page.

Please pass this on to anyone who will pray this litany for the first 9 days of each month for the poor souls on this earth TODAY who are suffering persecution of all types, including death, just for being a Christian.
