“And touching our Society, be it known to you that we have made a league – all the Jesuits in the world – cheerfully to carry the cross you shall lay upon us, and never to despair your recovery, while we have a man left to enjoy your Tyburn, or to be racked with your torments or consumed with your prisons. The expense is reckoned, the enterprise is begun; it is of God, it cannot be withstood. So the faith was planted; so it must be restored. “
An excellent video on the fearless, unforgettable Saint Edmund Campion. Here is “Campion’s Brag”, so called by his murderers, which actually is a moving defense of his mission to England to give spiritual succor to Catholics suffering under the regime of Bad Queen Bess, Elizabeth I. Here is a book on Saint Campion’s debates at the Tower of London before his trial in 1581. May God send us such a champion again.
