    It calls forth the deepest and heartfelt prayers from our being for those who would suffer only because of their love for their Faith and therefore for humanity… This calls forth the question of what we, in the relative comfort and freedom of our own lives, can sacrifice and accomplish for that same Cause?
    There will be no peace of mind or tranquillity of heart without that being addressed…
