More Coptic Martyrs

From Abbey-Roads: "Whoever loses his life for my sake, will find it in eternity, says the Lord."- Common for Martyrs

From Vultus Christi: "Their only words: 'Jesus, help me!'"

Let us have courage like our brothers in faith. The assassins who killed them have accomplished nothing but increase the number of saints in Heaven. Every Christian in the world will look upon those brave martyrs and find strength and fortitude. In trying to destroy us, the enemy had made us strong.
But the souls of the just are in the hand of God, and the torment of death shall not touch them. In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die: and their departure was taken for misery: And their going away from us, for utter destruction: but they are in peace. And though in the sight of men they suffered torments, their hope is full of immortality. Afflicted in few things, in many they shall be well rewarded: because God hath tried them, and found them worthy of himself. ~Wisdom 3: 1-5

They WILL rest in peace while their murders will continue to live in confused agony and rage and the living hell they have created within themselves.
