New website to examine Christian persecution around the world

.- The suffering of persecuted Christians across the world will be documented in a new website. The site features documentaries, statistics, and interviews with those who live in areas of persecution. The website Where God Weeps, located at http://www.WhereGodWeeps.org, is produced by Catholic Radio and Television Network (CRTN) in cooperation with Aid to the Church in Need (ACN).

It complements CRTN’s television and radio series on persecuted Christians, also called Where God Weeps, which are broadcast by the Eternal Word Television Network.

Drawing on resources such as ACN’s report on the persecution of Christians, “Persecuted and Forgotten,” the website also interviews cardinals, bishops, priests, missionaries and lay experts.

The site features a monthly focus on particular countries where Christians endure persecution, an ACN press release reports. The monthly feature will show a 12-minute documentary, key statistics, political and social facts, and an interview with a leading Church figure in the country.

Additionally, the website includes a breaking news page and a “how to help” section featuring ACN-supported projects.

“The media platform provides an important opportunity for people wanting to find out more about the suffering Church and how they get involved,” explained Mark Riedemann, director of CRTN.

Riedemann noted that the Jan. 25 launch date, the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, points to the “essence” of the website’s aims. St. Paul was a persecutor of Christians but converted and became a champion of their faith.

He added that the website aims to reflect evidence that the persecution of Christians has increased. In some countries persecution threatens the survival of the Church.
