CWN Editor's Note: In 2015, 21 Coptic Christians were kidnapped and beheaded by ISIS; as they died, they said the name of Jesus. Days later, Pope Francis offered Mass for them, praying “that the Lord will welcome them as martyrs,” and the 21 slain Christians are now venerated as martyrs in the Coptic Orthodox Church.
