While horrified to see this blatant act of desecration and malicious disrespect toward Christ and His Church, in my humble opinion, it needs to be shared and viewed by many. If viewing this does not bring tears to one’s eyes, a knot in one’s stomach or pain to one’s heart, then the de-sensitization that is so sadly prevalent in today’s society has taken over and the last sin is worse than the first....Lord Have Mercy. While viewing this video, one verse of Scripture played over and over in my mind:
“Blessed are you when men shall revile you and persecute you and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for My sake.
Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven.”
- Matthew 5: 11-12
May we humbly ask God in His infinite love for all mankind to be with those who are so deeply and profoundly affected by this persecution and brutality. May He have mercy on us all.
"Sick to your stomach" only begins to
describe!! It has the feeling of Christ being
crucified all over again. To me this gives the
appearance of what it must have been like when the
Roman soldiers mocked, spit on and physically abused
our Lord. I kept waiting to see lightning bolts strike
down the soldiers as they desecrated the beautiful
icons of Christ and all his saints (I probably would
have found myself cheering out loud). Contrary to
striking these evil men down the Saints whose icon is
being destroyed was probably praying for the soldiers
and I can almost imagine Christ asking God the Father
to "forgive them for they know not what they do" Could
this be what it looked like when the Saints were being
martyred and what could one day happen to us if we
stand up for our faith?....Where can one learn more
about what is happening in Kosovo? Not only is apathy
an issue and an evil here but also ignorance, for
which I am guilty of.
