Featured Term (selected at random:
A person who chooses to suffer, even to die, rather than renounce his or her faith or Christian principles. After the example of Christ one does not resist one's persecutors when they use violence out of hatred or malice against Christ, or his Church, or some revealed truth of the Catholic religion. (Etym. Greek martyros, witness, martyr.)

Are more martyrs to come? (Look at all the Christians being killed in the Middle East.)
Will this happen in the U. S. A.? Probably.
