Luchas, dudas, amenazas. ¿Morir, vivir o sobrevivir?
Roma. Persecución. Cristianos. Al escuchar estas three palabras, pensamos en los mártires y el Coliseo Romano pero esta no es l. a. historia de aquellos que prefirieron morir antes que negar su fe, sino de muchos otros conocidos como “lapsos”.
Lapsi: (los que tropezaron). Palabra latina con que se designó a los primeros cristianos que abjuraron de su fe ante los angeles presión de las autoridades romanas. Siglo three. Cartago, San Cipriano. Cuatro historias se entretejen para mostrarnos diversas reacciones: quien prefirió firmar antes de sufrir, quien padeció martirio por las circunstancias más que por sus convicciones, quien huyó antes de ser apresado, quien vivió atormentado por mártires del pasado. Conozca a dos mujeres y dos hombres. Descubra sus luchas, secretos, dudas y amenazas en 250 A.D. Algunos se identificaran mejor con los lapsos que con los mártires pero hasta los lapsos pudieron renovar su compromiso con Dios.[i][/i]
