In an effort to draw attention to the plight of persecuted Christians around the world, Rome’s Colosseum was bathed in red light on Saturday, February 24, 2018.

The event, sponsored by Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), was held in conjunction with similar events at several churches in Syria and Iraq, including the St. Elijah Maronite Cathedral in Aleppo and the Church of St. Paul in Mosul. Read about it HERE.
