Witnesses to the Faith

Who are these Witnesses to the Faith?

The people who suffered persecution, violence and death on account of the Gospel during the 20th century are so numerous, witnesses of every culture, nation and vocation.  The victims of Communism, Nazism and of other dictatorships,  the witnesses to the faith who fell in the course of ethnie and tribal wars, the believers persecuted as hatred for their faith, the Christians in the service of justice and all the unknown people whose faith is known to God alone.

Even today, situations of discrimination and religious intolerance persist in several countries. In other parts of the world, the persecution persists on disciples of Christ who work with the poor and fighting against injustice. No, the time of witnesses to their faith is not finished.
