Wake Up!

Wake up! is the cry that our persecuted brothers and sisters from the East, especially from Syria and Iraq, make to the West. This video shows you the life of an authentic Christian faith, full of the cross, forgiveness, strength and hope; and, at the same time, a faith that is awake to the reality of persecution, not only in the East, but also gradually in the West.

Sr. Maria of Guadalupe Rodrigo, SSVM

In this episode of “In the Footsteps of the Nazarene,” we present the hopeful testimony of Sr. Maria of Guadalupe Rodrigo, Argentinian of the religious family the Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE). Sr. Guadalupe has been a missionary in the Middle East for nearly 20 years. During her time in the community of Aleppo, violent conflicts, which were especially anti-Christian, broke out in Syria. In this interview, she joyfully explains the change that the Christian community experienced due to this religious persecution; from more or less lukewarm Christians, they’ve awoken to the reality of their faith and the real possibility of martyrdom. Now, in the Western world, Sr. Guadalupe longs for the joy and passion for the Gospel, which is so alive in the persecuted Church.

His Excellency Amel Shimoun Nona

Due to persecution a great part of the Christians in Mosul were forced to flee from their homes. About 120,000 people, including entire families, spent the whole night walking, looking for refuge. They have lost everything, but despite numerous hardships, they have the courage to live their faith. It is a faith that knows no fear. For them dying isn't a problem; they have no fear of death. What they want is to live today courageously and fearlessly.
