 Excerpt from Foxe's Book of Martyrs

A true Romeo and Juliet story.

The woman desired earnestly to die with her husband, but she was not suffered; yet, following him to the place of execution, she gave him comfort, exhorting him to perseverance and patience for Christ's sake, and, parting from him with a kiss, said, 'Husband, rejoice, for we have lived together many joyful days; but this day, in which we must die, ought to be most joyful unto us both, because we must have joy for ever; therefore I will not bid you good night, for we shall suddenly meet with joy in the Kingdom of Heaven.' The woman, after that, was taken to a place to be drowned, and albeit she had a child sucking on her breast, yet this moved nothing the unmerciful hearts of the enemies. So, after she had commended her children to the neighbours of the town for God's sake, and the sucking bairn was given to the nurse, she sealed up the truth by her death.

Taken from Foxe's Book of Martyrs

 Re: Excerpt from Foxe's Book of Martyrs

Foxe's is a pretty gripping book. And it is standard Christianity, as opposed to the sub-standard type we see nowadays.

Truly, their parting was temporary.

My we have the same vision, the see how temporary this life truly is.

God bless.

 Re:

It took me 17 years to read that book. Couldn't take what I read at first. Lack of understanding. Now I understand.

What a great God we serve.

Glory to God.
