The father of a family I know from my spiritual adventures passed away this week after a long illness. I knew his children but I didn't know him, or so I thought. It turns out I had seen him many times, a quiet, humble and unassuming little man who was a daily communicant.
I was not entirely surprised to learn that prior to emigrating to America, he spent 26 years in prison because he refused to renounce Christ.
Please pray for the repose of his soul and for the consolation of his family.
