Monks of Quarr Abbey, Fr Jerome Bertram of the Oxford Oratory

There has never been a time when the Church has not been persecuted, nor ever shall be, but in our time the persecution rages with a savagery not often known, unpredictable where and whom it strikes. These meditations were composed to reflect on the circumstances of this present outbreak, though not so specific that they cannot be prayed for the suffering Church wherever and whenever the martyrs lie.
