#313 – A History of the Catholic Church – The Sheep Are Scattered

The Persecutions of Decius caused a great tremor throughout the Catholic Church. Many Christians will willingly die for the sake of the faith, but many more will abandon Christianity in the face of threats of torture and death. In this episode, we hear their stories – including the account of the Seven Holy Sleepers.
