Huss was a Czech priest who was burned at the stake for heresy against the doctrines of the Catholic Church. Particularly he fought against the doctrines of Ecclesiology and the Eucharist as taught by the Roman Catholic Church. He was an early reformer living before the time of Luther and Calvin (other well-known reformers of Roman Catholicism).
Huss was martyred on July 6, 1415. He refused to recant his position of the charges that were brought against him. On the day he died he is said to have stated, “God is my witness that the things charged against me I never preached. In the same truth of the Gospel which I have written, taught, and preached, drawing upon the sayings and positions of the holy doctors, I am ready to die today.”

The Persecuted Church Today
A young girl in southern Mexico has recently returned to church, after being forbidden from attending last year by her Zapatista parents. At the end of October, Carla visited her Christian grandparents and was able to return to the church where she accepted Christ. She was nervous about returning and feared that she might be shunned for failing to attend the Christian children’s group. Zapatistas, such as her parents, often shun community members who do not participate in meetings. Pray that Carla and her grandparents will remain faithful despite pressure from Carla’s parents and other members of the Zapatista community. Pray also for Christians who continue to reach out to children and others in the Zapatista community. [/request/450/carla/]https://www.icommittopray.com/request/450/carla/
