Martyrs in Spain

A work recalling the difficult times the communities of the Marist Brothers knew during the years of the Spanish civil war. The tragic destiny of the 66 brothers and 2 laymen committed to the Christian faith is among the events described there.

The chapters of the book, organised by communities, emphasize the importance each group of brothers gave to the community dimension of the Gospel, lived in the day-to-day tasks, but also recount the particular circumstances in which each suffered martyrdom.

In the author’s words, the book is intended to be an invitation « to silence, meditation and prayer. »
