“Death is the happiest day of our lives. We must rejoice in it more than anything, because it is our arrival in our true homeland.” – Maurice Tornay (Martyr for Jesus Christ)

“Dear ones, live near to God and cling less closely to Earth. There is no other way by which we can receive that peace from God which passeth understanding.” – Lizzie Atwater (1900) Martyr by nationalist reaction in China against Christian missionaries.

It is astounding, the level of courage, peace and eve joy that the Martyrs found in the face of torchure and death. They fully understood that nothing on this eart compares with what God has in store for us if we fully surrender to Him. Betty Stam, also a Christian Martyr, put it this way; “When we consecrate ourselves to God, we think we are making a great sacrifice, and doing lots for Him, when really we are only letting go some little bitsy trinkets we have been grabbing; and when our hands are empty, He fills them with His treasures.”
