Today marks Holocaust Remembrance Day. Over the course of 12 years, the Nazi regime perpetrated the largest, most abhorrent crimes in all of human history. As we remember the over 6 million victims of the Holocaust, please keep those persecuted in your thoughts and prayers and remember those that still face persecution today.
St. Francis now has a gay member originally from Nigeria. He speaks eloquently about the persecution facing gays - and lesbians - in Africa today. The tide of hatred is rolling around the world and many, many, many are at risk.
