Nice quote Michael. Very Bonhoefferian in fact.

I thought I'd dig out another one on martyrdom for your archives; this one on the limits of martyrdom.

'No martyrdom could do what the death of Christ does for faith. No martyrdom could offer God in
advance the souls of a changed race. For no martyr as such is sure of the future. It is easier to forget all the martyrs than the Saviour; and their power fades with
time, while His grows with the ages. With the martyr’s death we can link many admirable reflections, exhortations, and even inspirations. What it does not
give us is the new and Eternal Life. It is not the consummation of God’s saving purpose for the world'. - No prize for guessing who :-)
