The Courageous Shahbaz Bhatti

Today as we celebrate the feast of the first Martyr, remembering Saint Stephen, who was one of the first deacons (Acts 6:5). We remember the martyrs of our time who faithfully led their lives proclaiming and living out the Gospel even in the face of persecution.

One such martyr is the Pakistani Minister, Shahbaz Bhatti, who gave his life contending for the rights of marginalized Christian community of Pakistan.
