Our 21 Martyrs – شهداؤنا في ليبيا-

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you” (Matthew 5:10-12)

On February 12th, 21 Coptic Orthodox Christians were abducted in Libya by ISIS. On February 16, a video was released showing the brutal and barbaric beheading of these innocent men.

The Fellowship of Coptic Christian University Students will be holding a candlelight vigil Saturday evening in front of the flag pole to honor the 21 lives lost. Please join us as we gather to commemorate our brothers.

“For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s” (Romans 14:8)

Coptic lives matter. Muslim lives matter. ALL lives matter.
