“N”, or ن​, is the first letter of the Arabic word for Christian, “Nasrani” or Nazarene. It has become the symbol of solidarity for Iraqi Christians who are being forced by ISIS to leave their homes unless they convert to Islam, pay a fine, or face ‘death by the sword.’

Please recite the rosary in support of persecuted Christians throughout the world.
