The Agency FIDES publishes list of Church people killed in 2011

The FIDES news service noted the words of Pope Benedict XVI, who said on December 26 of that year, “As in ancient times, today the sincere adherence to the Gospel may require the sacrifice of life, and many Christians in various parts of the world are sometimes exposed to persecution and martyrdom”.  Fides’ list  includes not only missionaries ad gentes in the strict sense, but all pastoral care workers who died violent deaths.
