Marianist Martyrs - Carlos, Fidel and Jesús

Image result for blessed Carlos, Fidel and Jesus

Blessed Carlos, Fidel, and Jesús were born during the closing years of the nineteenth century and martyred in September and October of 1936 out of hatred for the faith. They were beatified on October 1, 1995, by Pope John Paul II.

Lord, our God,
To Blessed Carlos, Fidel, and Jesús,
Who were inflamed with the love of the Virgin Mary,
You gave the grace to suffer for Christ;
Grant that, through their intercession,
We may remain firm in the faith
Which they taught to children and youth,
And to which they bore witness
With their own blood in martyrdom.

We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, You Son,

Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever. Amen.
