CWN Editor's Note: Speaking to representatives of the Knights of the Holy Sepulcher on November 16, Pope Francis spoke of “the dramatic situation of Christians who are persecuted and killed in ever-greater numbers.” He added that many Christians suffer “white martyrdom,” unable to practice their faith “in democratic countries when religious freedom is limited.” The Pope urged support—in material aid and in prayer—for suffering Christians.
