NYNE Diocese Support fund to assist the families of the 21 Coptic Martyrs in Libya

The Coptic Orthodox Diocese of New York and New England grieves the heinous execution of 21 young men in Libya at the hands of the terrorist group that has called itself Islamic State. The brutality of this mass murder of innocents, combined with the inhumane way in which this group has sought to sensationalize its message of hate to the world, has struck the global community at its core, and drawn expressions of outrage and solidarity from the four corners of the earth.

The Diocese support fund has been established to assist the families of the martyrs and the Coptic families that had resided in Libya and are returning to Egypt leaving everything behind them with no future or career

    May God comfort the families of the 21 martyrs that died recently. Death always painful…but more when is like what happened to our Coptic Brothers in Libya.

    Hope God can help all Christians around the world………we just have to keep praying and accept his willing even if is not what we want, only God knows why things happened the way it is.

    I am Catholic (which means Universal). In that tradition, I support this fund at nynecopts.org this Lenten season. I hope The God of us all multiplies my contribution that Blesses not only the families of the Martyrs but sheds Light to the Darkness of Evil. I entreat all God fearing/loving faithfuls be you Muslims, Christians, Buddhists , etc. to join me.

    Martyrs for Christ draw us together in His love. We know the end of this story…Jesus wins…and those who have gone home early in service to Him await us in peace. May God richly bless their families and friends with the greatest comfort. Thank you, NYNECopts.org for providing this opportunity to take part.

    These men of faith are a model of faith for all Christians to emulate! God comfort their families in their time of loss and sorrow. I could only pray that may faith is strong and proudly give my life out of love for our Savior Jesus Christ! Our time here is but an instant yet their example is timeless and inspiring! God bless your church and global congregation!

    My heart goes out to the families of these brave Christian men who refused to renounce the one true God and maintained the testimony of our Lord Jesus Christ in the face of death. The patience of the saints is in the promise of our God that He will avenge the death of these men when the time is right. I pray that we could all be as brave under the brutality of the enemy as our brothers were.

    May God bless your Churche efforts and the families of our 21 brothers in Christ. This sad incident is another reminder that Evil exists, but I also know that the Goodness of our Lord Jesus Christ will ALWAYS prevail. May we never forget those who have died in the name of Jesus and that we are in this world but not of this world.
    “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Revelation 21:4 Amen
