Ecumenism of Blood by Fr Hugh Somerville Knapman,OSB is dedicated to the twenty Coptic martyrs and one Muslim Ghanaian murdered on a Libyan beach in February 2015. Many who saw the highly choreographed, yet grotesque ritual of these murders, filmed by Daesh for propaganda, were struck by the calm witness of these men as they mouthed the name of Jesus before their death. This book asks whether the blood of martyrdom for Christ reconciles non-Catholics to the Church, even those from communities outside the apostolic succession.
