Shrine honouring persecuted Christians opens in London
A shrine has opened in London displaying sacred liturgical items desecrated by extremists in Iraq.
The 10 objects – including chalices, crucifixes and a statue – many of them bent and broken, were formally blessed at a ceremony on November 3, at Farm Street Catholic Church, where the shrine has been erected.
Question for thought:
- Why is having a shrine to these relics and for these people so significant?
