Homily #100116 ( 05min) Play - St Berard and Companions were the first martyrs in the Franciscan Order when they were killed after having preached to the Mohammedans. Father explains that martyrdom is the ideal in that it is the ultimate sacrifice and so the ultimate love and sanctity. He further explains that we are all called to martyrdom but more to the martyrdom by "slow fire".

    Yes, even if we aren’t called to a red martyrdom, we are nevertheless called to lay down our lives for Christ in a white martyrdom, through which we will be clothed with the linen of the freedom of God’s children.
