"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Hold that thought.

"We should all take time to ponder our own martyrdom, because the time may come when we are called to give up absolutely everything for the sake of Christ." - Catholic Eye Candy Blog


  1. What a great painting!

  2. I would love to be martyr. I think. Just kill me quick and don`t make it hurt too much!

    Agreed, a great image. What is it?

  4. I believe it is the martyrs of Nagasaki.

  5. These things make one feel like a voyeur of sorts-- one thinks martyrdom should be very personal. I guess it never is-- humiliation is the greater part of the poverty of the Cross. I'm scared to think of what our great-grandchildren (someday) may have to face.
