Outstanding address delivered at the University of Notre Dame last week:
Icon Holy Martyrs of Libya, 100×70 cm, aquarell on paper, 2015.
الشهداء القبطية المقدسين في ليبيا
The Holy Martyrs of Libya are 21 Christians, who were murdered by IS (ISIS) terrorists in February 2015. Before they had denied to renounce their faith though threatened with death for 40 days. The coptic Orthodox church acknowledged them new martyrs.
This icon is displayed in the exhibition at Brenkhausen Monastry in Höxter, Germany. The plan is to sell it and to support the bereaved families of the martyrs.

This is where I said Mass on Wednesday 30th September 2015.
Top of Kilimanjaro at nearly 6,000 metres ((19,341 feet) above sea level.
We prayed a lot (and our porters & guides joined us in daily Mass & prayers) for good weather. Our prayers were answered and the temperature stayed at about +5 C deg (low 40sF), there was no wind whatsoever (very rare) during the two hours we spent at the top.
The Mass was attended by a number of Tanzanian guides who were so happy to see Our Blessed Lord physically on top of Africa.
