«Tu as déjà vu un curé à la retraite? Je travaillerai jusqu'à mon dernier souffle»
"Have you ever seen a retired pastor? I will work until my last breath."
Père Jacques Hamel

Let my eyes stream with tears
day and night, without rest...
Today it feels as if everything stopped, all the fighting and squabbling faded into meaninglessness before the magnanimity and fortitude of this new martyr who shed his blood for the Church. Every concern I have had has paled in the light of this humble priest's martyrdom. He joins the Trappist Martyrs of Atlas today ...
May the angels lead you into paradise;
may the martyrs receive you at your arrival
and lead you to the holy city Jerusalem.
