Director's Message

"Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. "Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”                                                                                                                    - Matthew 5:11-12

Dearest Friends of Radio Maria,

May the peace of our Triune God be with you!

It is deeply saddening to see graphic and horrible pictures of Christians persecuted gruesomely because of their faith. The persecutors do not mind whether they are men or women, young or old, sick or healthy so long as they are Christians, they are to face death in its most macabre form. These scenarios are not anymore new to Christians. In fact, such has been the reason why the Church went on a steady dramatic growth in its first centuries. But to see it in our age and time with the modern developments in human thinking and technology is unimaginable. It is unacceptable. It is unbelievable.

Nevertheless, it is happening not only in a certain place but also in diverse places the world over. We cannot deny anymore its existence. It is really happening. And the latest numbers tell us that there are 60 million Christians suffering persecution today. Even Pope Francis says that this “appalling reality” has exceeded the number of martyrs in the first centuries of the Church.

Though this situation of our persecuted Christian brethren is really totally heart breaking we cannot afford to loose hope and despair rather we should be more inspired and strengthened. Our brethren are displaying a great witness to our faith. We can only give due importance to their absolute commitment and love of God and the faith if we turn their miserable plight into a beautiful opportunity to march together with a firm hope that their plight will bring a more lively faith in every Catholic Christian all over the world, which could inspire all others to believe in Jesus, the Son of God. They may have died a painful death on earth but their “reward in heaven is great” and their great sacrifice will not be forgotten by the Church but emulated and exalted.

However, we cannot just stand in our comfortable corners watching from a distance this atrocious Christian genocide. The Church is calling us to strengthen our unity with them through our prayers and sacrifices while calling on all world leaders to act on this and put it to stop. Otherwise, we would once again have a regrettable portion in the history of humanity when all our actions came too late. Blessed are they who come to pacify persecutions in the name of God, for truly they are true servants of Him who offers the rewards of heaven!

Let us run to Mary, the Help of All Christians, to come to the aid of her persecuted children to bring them solace, peace and consolation. May the Lord who has called us to be Christians keep us faithful to Him, to the Faith and to the Church!

Sincerely yours,

Fr. Raymund S. Cruz

Brothers and sisters : If Christ is preached as raised from the dead, how can some among you say there is no resurrection of the dead? If there is no resurrection of the dead, then neither has Christ been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then empty (too) is our preaching; empty, too, your faith. Then we are also false witnesses to God, because we testified against God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if in fact the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, neither has Christ been raised, and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is vain; you are still in your sins. Then those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are the most pitiable people of all. But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
