The martyrs are perfected in righteousness…


Memorial of The Passion of St. John the Baptist

The martyrs are perfected in righteousness, and they earned perfection through their martyrdom. For them the Church does not pray: for the other departed faithful she prays, but not for martyrs. They have gone out of this world so perfected that instead of being our clients, they are our advocates.

— St. Augustine
