According to a report prepared by Breibart, Rome will dye its Trevi Fountain red in honor of this eraÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s historic number of Christian martyrs.
The report also revealed that there are around 150 million Christians facing persecution across the globe, and it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t look like itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s slowing down. This is a hefty challenge, considering mankind can send people into space, yet still combats religiously-motivated violence.
Breibart says in 2015, there was a a notable rise in attacks against Christians. It also revealed that it may have even been the most violence sustained against Christians in modern history.
However, as previously reported by Open Doors USAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 2016 World Watch List (WWL), a ranking of the top 50 countries where Christians face the most sever persecution for their faith; shows a steep increase in violence against Christians in 2015, making it the most violent year since Open Doors began in 1955.
Open Doors USA urges Christians all over the world: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Please pray for Christians facing persecution for their faith. Pray for the spread of the Gospel, and for believersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ perseverance. If you want to help support Christians in persecuted areas, consider donating to Open Doors.Ã¢â‚¬Â
