Devotions to the Martyrs of England, Scotland & Wales. Veneration of Martyrs is one of the earliest devotions in the Church. For centuries Christians looked upon the Martyrs as the great heroes of the faith, offering the supreme testimony to Christ and the Gospel by laying down their lives rather than renounce their Christian faith.
This remarkable book tells of the many gifts and even miraculous favors which St. Joseph has granted to the dying, to travelers, to those whose salvation is in danger, to those who aspire to great holiness, to those in temporal want, to the Carmelite Order, and to the entire Church.
This special commemorative volume, published to celebrate the canonisation of John Henry Newman, includes a short biography of the great scholar and theologian, alongside key excerpts from his writings.
