There isn't a whole lot that I can say that these clips don't. I still can't fathom how such material wound up on Showtime, but I am grateful for them.
Being aware, as we are, of the current and coming persecutions throughout the world, it's probably inevitable that we ask ourselves the question: Could I do it? Could I be a martyr?
To be blunt, the answer is no. Neither you nor I could pull something like this off. God, on the other hand, can do such things, and we should not concern ourselves with whether or not our flesh is weak. It is. We should simply pray and trust in God that He will deliver us in these torments to the Pearly Gates.
St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher, pray for us that we may not fail in our times of trial.
