In the past several weeks, there have been 50 recorded incidents of churches, parishes, and religious statues being destroyed in the United States and Canada. That list continues to grow.

Using the wisdom of St. Paul and the inspiring story of Ireland’s Ballintubber Abbey, “The Abbey That Refused to Die,” I offer words of encouragement and four steps to counter persecution and the bad news we’re inundated with day after day in my latest episode of Simply Holy.
