Blessed are you when others

October 4, 2018 by Jennie Sottovia

Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you (Mt 5:11-12). Father, we ask that those in North Korea living the reality of a persecution beyond belief will nevertheless believe that God is not unaware of them and that they might have hope where only hopelessness in their lives reigns. In the name of your Son.
