[From Bl. James Hilary Barbel CosΓ‘n, one of over 95 LaSalle Brothers murdered during the Spanish Civil War:]

God be blessed! I'll pray for all of you in heaven. What more could I desire than to die for no other crime but that of being a religious and for having made my contribution to the Christian education of children?  Dear father and family, I have been judged and condemned to death. I accept the sentence with joy.
