Murdered in the cathedral for the honor of God

“A martyrdom is always the design of God, for His love of men, to warn them and to lead them, to bring them back to His ways. It is never the design of man; for the true martyr is he who has become the instrument of God, who has lost his will in the will of God, and who no longer desires anything for himself, not even the glory of becoming a martyr.” (Murder in the Cathedral)

“We must only do – absurdly – what we have been given to do – right to the end.” (Becket)

We will discuss T.S. Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral and Jean Anouilh’s Becket on Saturday, February 28.
