TOMORROW: #RedWednesday for persecuted Christians

The branch of the papal charity Aid to the Church in Need in the United Kingdom is sponsoring an effort tomorrow, November 23rd, called #RedWednesday as a way for us to "stand up for faith and freedom." The date was chosen because Aid to the Church in Need will release its annual report on the global persecution of Christians the following day on November 24th.

Participants in Red Wednesday are asked to wear red clothing "to honour those who have suffered because of their religion, and stand in solidarity with millions of people, targeted for their beliefs and living in fear."

Here is the video announcement of #RedWednesday, which further explains its ambition:

You can download a banner to use on your Facebook page or other social media platforms to help spread the word about #RedWednesday and to help bring attention and assistance to our brothers and sisters suffering throughout the world because of their faith in Christ Jesus.

While this initiative is being spearheaded by those in the United Kingdom, there is absolutely no reason why we in the United States of America cannot and should not participate. Please, wear red tomorrow in solidarity with your persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ.
