“Pray for us, O Holy Martyrs….” March 11, 2014

Just a really quick post from Dom Prosper Gueranger’s exegesis on the Forty Martyrs, Roman soldiers doomed to die on a frozen lake for their adherence to the Truth Christ has revealed through His Church:

Pray for us, O Holy Martyrs, that we may avoid all compromise with our enemies; for our defeat is certain if we try to serve two masters. 

I can think of no more appropriate intention for these authors than this!

And upon reflection, the Church will not change, and be restored, until we are.  That is the mandatory first step.

But sometimes, we may have to go beyond that, in order to defend Truth.
