They Would Not Give In

1 12 2008

From the CBCJ website`s column by Fr.  Grimm

article here

It starts off like an average news article about the 188 martyrs but Fr.  Grimm goes further and poses questions we should each ask ourselves.  In particular I liked his conclusion.

In other words, in a world that does not understand or make allowances for my faith, do I testify to that faith? Am I a fitting member of this Church of martyrs? When the time comes for me, for us, to meet the Lord and the martyrs face to face, will they say of us, “They would not give in”?

I know Im going to need all the grace of God and the help of the Holy Spirit to earn such words, and maybe by my prayers and dare I say even my example I may even drag along some people to receive such an honor too.
