Video-message of the Holy Father Francis - Sunday, 13 October 2013

"Who are the martyrs? They are Christians conquered by Christ, disciples who have learnt well the meaning of that 'love to the extreme' that led Jesus to the Cross. There is no such thing as love by installments, love by portions. Love is total and when one loves, one loves to the extreme. On the Cross, Jesus felt the weight of death, the weight of sin, but he trusted fully in the Father, and he forgave. He hardly spoke a word, but gave his life. Christ 'premiered' us in love: the martyrs imitated him in love to the end."

Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium 263

«We say that things are harder today;
they are simply different. But let us learn
from the saints who have gone before us
who have confronted the difficulties
of their own day».
