Roman Martyrology

"Martyrdom is the supreme witness given to the truth of the faith: it means bearing witness even unto death. The martyr bears witness to Christ who died and rose, to whom he is united by charity. He bears witness to the truth of the faith and of Christian doctrine. He endures death through an act of fortitude." (CCC 2473)

"The Church has painstakingly collected the records of those who persevered to the end in witnessing to their faith." (CCC 2474)
