Today, May 24, is the World Day of Prayer for the Church in China. It’s also the feast of Our Lady Help of Christians, who is venerated in a special way at the shrine of Sheshan near Shanghai.
Chinese Christians can really relate to the early Church because they live the same type of persecution. They risk their lives every time they go to Mass. Think about that the next time you feel lethargic about getting to church on Sunday morning.
Say a prayer for them.
