In Theory: On the question of martyrdom

Pope Francis this month visited Seoul, South Korea, where he beatified 124 Korean martyrs, Catholics who were killed in the 18th and 19th centuries for standing up for their religion when the Joseon Dynasty was bent on bringing a halt to Western influence on the Korean Peninsula. “They challenge us to think about what, if anything, we ourselves would be willing to die for,” the pope said.
