Excerpt from Memorials of Those Who Suffered for the Catholic Faith in Ireland: In the 16th, 17th, and 18th Centuries
Christians are told to remember that we have a great cloud of witnesses over our head, and' are called on, laying aside every weight of sin which surrounds'us, to run by patience to the fight proposed, strengthened by the example of the saints, and are reminded that the just seem to the eyes of the foolish to die, but indeed are in peace. Hence, from the first ages of Christianity, it was looked upon as a sacred duty to preserve the memory of the lives and deaths of those who had served Christ, and who had been deemed worthy to suffer for his name the memory of their deaths even more than that of their lives, because, while death to the pagan was the final end, (the limit to the labors and successes of great men,) to the Christian it was the very instrument of Victory - the moment of triumph to the former, it was the termination of existence 5 to the latter, it was the commencement of the real life: for the former, the cause fell with its defender; for the latter, the triumph of the truth was secured by the death of its martyr.
