St. John Henry Newman - Martyrdom

Catholic Culture Audiobooks

“The unseen God alone was their Comforter, and this invests the scene of their suffering with supernatural majesty, and awes us when we think of them.”

In our last episode, we heard the oldest of the Acts of the Martyrs: the first hand account of the martyrdom of St. Polycarp. Today, we'll hear a sermon from St. John Henry Newman on the topic of martyrdom itself, and on the early church martyrs in particular.

You’ll find the reflections here conducive to a deeper appreciation for the account of St. Polycarp’s martyrdom. If you’ve not yet had a chance to listen to that episode, you’ll want to be sure to do so after hearing this sermon.

Of course, if you already tuned in last time, you could always go back and listen again!
