Be advised that the illustrations (not photos) used in this video are graphic.

The intent of this video is to remind Christians of our brothers and sisters who chose agony and death rather than deny our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Let us not forget also the many Christians around the world today who are currently suffering persecution for their faith in Jesus Christ. May we remember to pray for them always.

May we all in the Church today have such blessed faith.
