"If the heart is cleansed by the love of Jesus Christ, and if the heart loves Him, one can resist all tortures. What would a loving bride not do for a loving bridegroom? ...God will judge us not according to how much we endured, but how much we could love. The Christians who suffered for their faith in prisons could love. I am a witness that they could love God and men."
- Richard Wurmbrand, Tortured for Christ.
"The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church."
Tertullian, 1st century AD
"'Very few people were true Nazis' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care.... So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything.'"
