WATCH: Catholic Priest Assaulted by Deranged Female during Large Mass in Brazil

Christianity is being demonized more and more in the age of globalism.

Father Marcelo Rossi, a popular Brazilian priest, was attacked by a deranged woman while proceeding over mass earlier today. The woman rushed the stage and pushed him onto the floor, shocking the 50,000 Catholics in attendance.

A video of the assault can be seen here:

Thankfully, Rossi is not hurt as a result of the attack. He finished the mass after his tumble, and told his following in a YouTube video that he just had a few little pains from the push but no broken bones or serious injuries.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was sickened by the display, and issued a statement of support for Rossi following today’s incident.

“All our solidarity with Father Marcelo Rossi, God look at our Brazil,” Bolsonaro wrote in a Facebook post, translated from Portugese.

According to a news article from Folha de S.Paulo, Rossi was preaching during the closing segment of the Por Hoje Não camp, hosted by Canção Nova. Canção Nova is leading a charismatic renewal of the Catholic Church in Brazil, which is growing in popularity during a time when faith is under constant attack.

Rossi has arisen as one of the most popular religious figures in South America, regularly filling stadiums with believers desiring to hear him preach the Gospel. His albums have sold over 16 million copies, and he was even nominated for a Latin Grammy in 2002.

The Brazilian Left, still reeling from last year’s loss to Bolsonaro after an assassination attempt against the nationalist leader failed, sees Rossi as a man standing in the way of their desired annihilation of traditional values. This attack on Rossi for professing his faith comes during a time when Christianity is under severe persecution throughout the world.

A Pew research study released in April showed Christianity as the world’s most persecuted religion. They presented data showing that Christians are persecuted in 144 different countries throughout the world.

The report also showed that global hostility toward Christianity and religion in general is spiking as secular globalism spreads throughout the world like a plague.

“In many countries, restrictions on religion resulted from actions taken by government officials, social groups or individuals,” the report explained.

Of the nations they studied, 28 percent of countries demonstrated “high” or “very high” state restrictions against free religious expression in 2016. The repression is trending upward as religious liberty is quickly becoming a remnant of the past.

The assault against Rossi is emblematic of a hostile attitude that is expanding throughout the world against practitioners of the Christian faith. No believer in Christ is safe from this elevated threat of aggression, whether they are in a first-world nation, a third-world nation, or anywhere in between.
