Memo to WYD: Forget the program, teach youth about the martyrs

https://cruxnow.com/analysis/2016/07/27/memo-wyd-forget-program-teach-yo... to WYD: Forget the program, teach youth about the martyrs
The high-end estimate for the number of Christians killed for the faith in the world today every year, which comes from the Center for the Study of Global Christianity, is around 100,000. Other observers believe the number is much lower, perhaps closer to 8,000. (Much depends on how one defines a death “for the faith.”)John L. Allen Jr.July 27, 2016
The Global Council for Indian Christians(GCIC), a largely Protestant body in India, estimates for the last decade, there has been an average of one violent assault on a Christian in their country every other day.
This is an undated image of French Priest Jacques Hamel made available by the Catholic Diocese of Rouen in France on Tuesday July 26, 2016. Priest Jacques Hamel was killed on Tuesday when two attackers slit the throat of the 86-year-old priest who was celebrating Mass Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, in France, killing him
and gravely injured another of the handful of church-goers present before being shot to death by police. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the first attack in a church in the West. (Credit: Diocese of Rouen via AP.)This week Catholic youth from all over the planet are gathered in Krakow, in part for a series of catechism sessions. In light of the brutal execution of French Father Jacques Hamel on Tuesday, organizers may want to set aside their prepared sessions and teach the young about today's new Christian martyrs.
