CCC 2473:  Martyrdom is the supreme witness given to the faith:
it means witness even unto death.
The martyr bears witness to Christ who died and rose,
to whom he is united by charity.
He bears witness to the truth of the faith and of Christian doctrine.
He endures death through an act of fortitude.
“Let me become the food of the beasts,
through whom it will be given me to reach God”
[This quote at the end is from the Letter to the Romans by S. Ignatius of Antioch].

“Nothing can happen to me that God doesn’t want.
And all that He wants, no matter how bad it may
appear to us, is really for the best.”

“Martyrdom is a grace which I do not think I deserve.
But if God accepts the sacrifice of my life,
may my blood be a seed of freedom and
a sign of that hope will soon be a reality.”

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
