MEMORIAL OF CORNELIUS, POPE, AND CYPRIAN, BISHOP, MARTYRS
The cost of discipleship can be high
Saints Cornelius and Cyprian were friends during the 200s, a period when Christians were persecuted by the Roman Empire. Today a number of countries continue to oppress, harass, and even kill Christians. There is pressure today, as there was in the era of the early martyrs, to deny the faith in order to survive. With Cornelius and Cyprian in mind, stand in solidarity with courageous Christians everywhere. Learn what their needs are and how the worldwide church can help.
1 Timothy 4:12-16; Luke 7:36-50 (446).
