Quote of the day: 18 August

They will never give themselves up to useless worries about being set free. Instead, they will make the effort to profit from the time of their detention by meditating on their past years, by making holy resolutions for the future, so that they can find in the captivity of their bodies, freedom for their soul.

  1. This quote is familiar, but I do not remember the Martyrs. Perhaps I read it in a previous year. What an exemplary attitude. I hope if this were ever my fate, I would meet it so joyfully.
