We Remember: The Maryrs of Lyons

Learn more about Blandina and Her Companions, The Martyrs of Lyons

Martyrdom is never nice to hear about, but Jesus never promised a trouble-free life. While most of us will not have to pay the ultimate price for our beliefs, following Christ isn’t always easy today, either. Our world sees a lot of conflict, unrest and violence that makes peace seem like a far-off dream. We would do well to remember that we are always called to be witnesses. When we stop caring about the world’s troubles and fail to speak out in the name of Christ, our witness suffers. Let’s always remember the courage of our ancestors in the faith.

Almighty God, who gave your servants Blandina and her companions boldness to confess the Name of our Savior Jesus Christ before the rulers of this world, and courage to die for this faith: Grant that we may always be ready to give a reason for the hope that is in
us, and to suffer gladly for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
