Martyrs

In London, England.

Three of many statues above the Great West Door of Westminster Abbey, commemorating 20th century martyrs. Flanking the well-known Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., are lesser known defenders of the poor who were also assassinated. On the left, is Grand Duchess Elizabeth Fyodorovna of Russia, and to the right is Oscar Romero.

Read about them and weep.

“The way of the world is to praise dead saints, and persecute living ones.” — Nathaniel Howe
