Throughout the world, many who profess belief in Jesus Christ face discrimination, torture, imprisonment and death for their faith. According to a major report, persecution of Christians is at an all-time high.
In the United States, the word “persecution” is increasingly used in debates about religious liberty, which has emerged as a key cultural and political issue.
Editor Matt Gambino and producer Gina Christian discuss Christian persecution, and examine ways in which the church, as the body of Christ, can respond.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
