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
