No Greater Love

Ten niches at London’s Westminster Abbey honor 20th century martyrs. Here are three of those ten women and men.

Today is the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr.  He championed the cause of the oppressed in the United States. Archbishop Oscar Romero championed the cause of the oppressed in El Salvador. Deitrich Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran pastor who opposed the Nazi state.

“There is no greater love than this: that a person would lay down his life for the sake of his friends.”
