Director's Message

"Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. "Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”                                                                                                                    - Matthew 5:11-12

Dearest Friends of Radio Maria,

May the peace of our Triune God be with you!

It is deeply saddening to see graphic and horrible pictures of Christians persecuted gruesomely because of their faith. The persecutors do not mind whether they are men or women, young or old, sick or healthy so long as they are Christians, they are to face death in its most macabre form. These scenarios are not anymore new to Christians. In fact, such has been the reason why the Church went on a steady dramatic growth in its first centuries. But to see it in our age and time with the modern developments in human thinking and technology is unimaginable. It is unacceptable. It is unbelievable.

Nevertheless, it is happening not only in a certain place but also in diverse places the world over. We cannot deny anymore its existence. It is really happening. And the latest numbers tell us that there are 60 million Christians suffering persecution today. Even Pope Francis says that this “appalling reality” has exceeded the number of martyrs in the first centuries of the Church.

Though this situation of our persecuted Christian brethren is really totally heart breaking we cannot afford to loose hope and despair rather we should be more inspired and strengthened. Our brethren are displaying a great witness to our faith. We can only give due importance to their absolute commitment and love of God and the faith if we turn their miserable plight into a beautiful opportunity to march together with a firm hope that their plight will bring a more lively faith in every Catholic Christian all over the world, which could inspire all others to believe in Jesus, the Son of God. They may have died a painful death on earth but their “reward in heaven is great” and their great sacrifice will not be forgotten by the Church but emulated and exalted.

However, we cannot just stand in our comfortable corners watching from a distance this atrocious Christian genocide. The Church is calling us to strengthen our unity with them through our prayers and sacrifices while calling on all world leaders to act on this and put it to stop. Otherwise, we would once again have a regrettable portion in the history of humanity when all our actions came too late. Blessed are they who come to pacify persecutions in the name of God, for truly they are true servants of Him who offers the rewards of heaven!

Let us run to Mary, the Help of All Christians, to come to the aid of her persecuted children to bring them solace, peace and consolation. May the Lord who has called us to be Christians keep us faithful to Him, to the Faith and to the Church!

Sincerely yours,

Fr. Raymund S. Cruz

When three are gathered in your name (Mt 18,20) they already form a church. Watch over the thousands assembled here: their hearts have prepared a sanctuary before ever our hands constructed this one for the glory of your name. May their interior temple be as beautiful as this temple of stone. Be pleased to dwell in one as in the other; our hearts, like these stones, are signed with your name. The mighty power of God might have raised up a habitation with as much ease as, at a gesture, it brought the world into being. But God has formed man so that man might form a habitation for him. Blessed be his mercy who has so loved us! He is infinite, we are limited. He builds the world for us; we build a house for him. How wonderful it is that man is able to build a dwelling for the All-Powerful, ever present One, from whom nothing can escape. He dwells tenderly in our midst; he draws us with bonds of love; he stays among us and calls us to take the way of heaven that we might live with him. He ...
