A Christian couple were sentenced to death in Pakistan in early April reportedly for committing blasphemy via text messages. Lawyers said they will appeal the ruling and fight for the man and woman who are said to be illiterate.

‘We are seriously concerned. Cases like these are common and cause great suffering. We continue to pray, while the issue remains unresolved’, said Aloysius Roy, Superior of the Pakistani province. ‘We express our solidarity, but Christians keep a low profile, because life is full of difficulties and dangers, and for us the first commandment is to survive. Christians are afraid and they move with extreme caution.’
