One year ago four seminarians in Sokoto, Nigeria were kidnapped by a band of 45 Muslims. One of them -a courageous saint named Michael -refused to stop preaching the Gospel to his captors and thus they killed him. The murderer, Mustapha Mohammed, arrested by the police, confessed to the crime, claiming that the young seminarian "continued to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ" to his kidnappers. According to Muhammad, they had killed Michael because he kept asking them to repent and change their lives, letting go of their evil attitudes. He said that what bothered them the most was that although Michael knew they were Muslims, he kept insisting that they had to repent and abandon their way of life. This is daily life for priests and seminarians in the Middle East and North Africa.

My podcast this week is about modern day martyrs and the persecuted church. Please listen, like and share!
Title: Episode 57: Mary Kloska Speaks About Persecuted Christians and Jesus, the Good Shepherd
Description: In this episode, Mary talks about the plight of Christians who have suffered (or been killed) because they proclaim and live their faith in Jesus Christ. She tells the story of a Polish family (being considered for canonization) who was killed by the Nazis (the parents, along with their 7 small children -the youngest being half-born when their Mother was shot) because they were hiding Jews during World War II. She continues telling modern day stories of Catholics being persecuted for their faith -especially in the Middle East and Africa -and reads testimonies of how her books are strengthening, healing and helping them. At the end she speaks about Jesus as the Good Shepherd, who promises to gather, protect, provide for and reward His Sheep -especially those who have suffered heroically for His Name.
We need $5000 to print more books in Nigeria and Pakistan. PLEASE CONSIDER A DONATION to one of the gofundmes or directly through me (check) or to my publisher’s 501 tax exempt foundation!!!

I thought that all of my friends in Pakistan (as well as young men who serve at Church out there) might appreciate this 20 minute talk that I gave (via YouTube) to a group of young men who are altar servers in Pakistan. Please pray for these courageous young men!!

If your interested in helping persecuted Christians (or even just wondering what life is like for them) I finally gathered together all of the testimonials from emails, texts, etc., sent to me from Nigeria and Pakistan and put them together (with tons of pictures) in one place on my website.
Thank you to Deacon Tom and Dee at RIM Catholic Radio in Payson, Arizona for having me on their radio program a second time (I was on their "O is for OBEDIENCE" show in October 2020). Anyone interested in my work especially among persecuted Christians will enjoy our conversation. My interview begins at minute 10:50...
Happy Good Shepherd Sunday!!
