Persecution of Christians is getting worse - read our new religious freedom report, Persecuted and Forgotten?
Christians – already the world's most persecuted faith – are suffering worse persecution, violence and
In 20 of the 30 countries assessed, the situation has worsened since 2011. In others where the problems were
already extreme, there has been little or no change. In some countries Christianity now risks being wiped out,
and oppression and exodus threaten Christianity's status as a worldwide religion.
On these pages you can see, at a glance, the key findings of our new Persecuted and Forgotten? report,
as well as browsing our detailed country profiles and incident reports in more depth.

Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world. Christians are suffrering persecution and martyrdom in Egypt, Syria, and many other parts of the world.
They are our brothers and sisters. Pray and do penance on their behalf and for the conversion of the persecutors. Go to www.churchinneed.org
On Egypt and Syria: Comunist John Allen reports: On the subject of staying quiet, U.S. religious freedom activist Nina Shea also published a piece on Thursday
accusing the Obama administration of a lethargic response to attacks on Coptic Christians in Egypt being carried out by elements of the Muslim Brotherhood, as part

businesses this week, with one Coptic Orthodox leader calling the assaults "unprecedented in the modern era."
In his address to the nation on Thursday about the violence in Egypt, Obama did condemn attacks by protesters, specifically adding "including on churches,"
and also called for greater protection of the rights of "women and religious minorities."Shea, however, suggested that the administration ought to threaten to
withhold the $1.3 billion in military aid the U.S. provides to Egypt each year until it does a better job of keeping its Christians safe.Whatever the right

in other parts of the world will offer lively expressions of concern and solidarity -
RESOURCES ON THE PAPACY
Catechesis on the papacy is an integral part of understanding Pope Benedict XVI's decision to resign as Bishop of Rome, Successor to Peter.
To assist with this, the Archdiocese of Washington has created catechetical materials and resources for use in parishes, schools and religious education programs.
These resources have been created to support the work of pastors, teachers, catechists, youth ministers, RCIA leaders and homeschool families.

Getting married, relationship issues, marital difficulties?
The mission of the Institute for Marital Healing is to strengthen Catholic marriages and families by educating spouses,
marital therapists and clergy about common causes of conflicts in marital self-giving and effective approaches to
alleviating such conflicts. Through a combination of online resources, educational programs and publications, the
Institute employs a time-tested approach to marital therapy that recognizes the importance of both science and faith
in the process of marital healing.
For Engaged Couples For engaged couples, the Institute provides a comprehensive online precana
program which can help in the identification of the major emotional and character weaknesses which can damage marital
love and happiness. When conflicts are identified, we make recommendations to review appropriate chapters on this
website which address these issues. We also present the numerous medical and psychological scientific studies which
demonstrate the serious dangers to marriage and family life of cohabitation and the use of hormonal contraceptives.
