Shrine for Persecuted Church Opens in NYC

Church Militant: A new shrine in New York is honoring Christians persecuted for their faith.

The Shrine of Our Lady of Aradin, Mother of the Persecuted Church, opened at St. Michael the Archangel parish in Manhattan. It officially opened on Tuesday with the blessing and dedication of an icon of Our Lady of Aradin.

Father Benedict Kiely of told Breitbart, “We are at a Lepanto moment in Western history.”

He continued, “We must pray with the same fervor that the Christians prayed then to save Western civilization, not just from the danger of radical Islamist extremism, but from radical, aggressive secular liberalism.” Report is here.
