Wear the Cross for the 21 Martyrs

It’s nearly unbelievable to think what is happening to our brothers and sisters in Christ is the Middle East. I am calling all brothers and sisters to stand in solidarity with our martyred brothers and sisters in Egypt. We are the nation of the cross. Wear your cross as a sign of unity of faith.…
