Letters


      During their imprisonment the Blessed Martyrs had the opportunity to write letters to their families. These written on 24 August 1942, just few minutes before the execution are special relics to us. We can honour “the letters from guillotine” by careful reflection and prayer meditation over their content. Just a few meters from the instrument of execution – a guillotine, the Blessed Martyrs wrote letters full of faith and hope for eternal life. These words were written not only by unjust sentenced prisoners, but - in the first place - by Jesus Christ, who lived in their hearts.
