Coptic churches in the south of Egypt said they would not hold Easter celebrations this year, in mourning of the 45 Coptic Christians killed in the two Palm Sunday bomb attacks.

The Minya Coptic Orthodox Diocese said it would be commemorating Easter 'without any festive manifestations'. 'The Easter mass will be limited to prayers only,' a Facebook statement by Bishop Makarious of Minya and Abu Korkas said, according to Ahram Online.

At least 45 people were killed and more than 100 injured in Palm Sunday bombings on two Coptic churches in Egypt. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks.

:cry . . . :pray I am praying for the safety of all of those Christians remaining in Egypt. Praying that God's hedge of protection will be around them as they live their days on hostile soil. Praying that they will minister to their family members who are not yet believers in and followers of Jesus Christ that many more will turn away from Islam and toward Jesus. In Jesus' name, amen.

This makes me so sad. Also reminds me time is short for sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ wherever we are.
