Burgeoning Discourse on Martyrdom

Mecheline Zonia I. Manalastas

Discipline: Philosophy, Religion



Martyrdom is indeed a gift to some. Everyone has the chance but only few will experience this opportunity where faith in God is valiantly expressed in exchange of a suffering of death. Hence, the immeasurable courage of these two martyrs is more than enough to be a source of inspiration, hope, love and courage as well. And as pure as their hearts, it would be a strong testimony that we, too, even if we may not become martyrs of our time, should always have the same faith in God.
