Saw this image on Facebook today and I was struck by the calm. The dear priest trusts in Christ! I was compelled to find out more about him. I googled THIS, "he died in his armor." (Hanky alert)
This is why I love saints! Their courage...beyond worldly understanding...how radical is radical enough for Christ?
Many, if not most of our saints died for love of Christ...often as horrifically as this. May their blood instruct us and may we never question even an article of the faith that they were willing to GIVE THEIR LIVES for....
This is Father Francisco Vera, he was executed by firing squad for saying public Mass in Mexico.
