Let the Little Children Come to Me: Stories of Children Martyrs

Our first feelings when we think of martyred children may be those of sadness, for it is difficult to accept the fact that innocent children were brutalized. However, just as our Lord’s agonizing crucifixion led to His glorious resurrection, so did the slaughter of His youngest of martyrs lead to glory - eternal life, ‘...where there is no pain, sorrow or suffering.’ Their stories are not narratives of death but celebrations of life.
In today’s troubled times when the Church of Christ is bombarded by enemies from without and within, the sacrifice of these holy children shines brightly in a darkened world, attesting to the unshakable triumph of the Orthodox Christian faith, for as Christ Himself stated, ‘...the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.’ -- Prologue
