The Holy Trinity Order of St. John Matha

  Today is the feast day of St. John of Matha, born in 1154 and died in 1213. Sadly, his order is no longer doing the original charism for the order, which would be helping Catholics in the Muslim countries, like the troubles in  Mali, Nigeria, etc. Originally, this order was established to rescue Catholic saints from the Muslims. St. John of Matha. San Tommaso in Formis, which has a Cosmati mosaic showing the freeing of slaves., shows the main reason for the order.  Modern, revisionist history states that non-Christians held these slaves, which means, really the Muslims were holding them as slaves for ransom. 

St, John, pray for our brothers and sisters in Egypt, Mali, Nigeria....
