This book is an account of the Maryknoll Missionaries in the Far East in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Let us remember that the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Faith. The book begins: Ono day toward the close of May, 1885, a telegram arrived at the Paris Seminary, containing these words "Bechet decapite" - (Bechet beheaded). Five weeks later a communication was received from the Bishop of West Tongking, Indo-China, stating that Father Bechet, an alumnus of the Seminary, had indeed been put to death, with three of his catechists and four other native Christians.” Father Walsh then proceeds into the homes where these martyrs were raised. Where is such courage learned? It begins in youth and at home. We must remember that a person doesn't suddenly become a martyr. Most have lived a pious life for decades, a few for a century prior to making the ultimate sacrifice of Their life.
