Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb 4th, 2016 Are You ن ?

We are living in a time of heroes of the Cross but we’re so enslaved to our American comfort that we live our days unaware. Meanwhile, brothers and sisters we’ve never met are losing everything, driven by persecution to flee for their lives with nothing but the literal clothes on their backs to live in tents, or worse. Those who do not make it out, or stay in defiance of Islamists to be the light of Christ in a darkening world, are being martyred for the Savior they love more than life itself.

What are you and I doing, not only to shine God’s light in our own darkening world, but to bring some relief to our brothers and sisters of faith who have lost all for the Cross of Christ?
