These early Christian martyrs weren’t the only ones to die heroically. In fact, we have litanies of people who gave their lives for their faith.I try to start each reflection with a story that shows how I relate to the Gospel or first reading, but I couldn’t think of one for today. I can’t find a way to compare myself with these heroes of our faith. When I think of the men and women who gave their life for their faith, I am always inspired. St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. Lawrence, the North American Martyrs, St. Steven, St. Thomas Moore, the list goes on. If these exemplary people had the strength to die for their faith, then I should work each day to live for mine.
