Whats special about November 24 ?

Its the Catholic feast day for Andrew Dung Lac Vietnamese Catholic Priest and other Vietnamese Catholic martyrs.

Lets also take a moment to consider other martyrs Catholic Protestant or Buddhist or others who in ancient or modern times have been persecuted  for their choice of religion or choice to convert to another religion.

Buddhists were once persecuted for practising a "foreign cult".

Take a moment today to consider the plight of minorities and people who have been martyrs for religion or ideology or philosophy or politics of any kind.
