    Excerpt from Seventeen Suffolk Martyrs

    Historical facts there are which it is thought convenient to ignore. For it is another characteristic of the day to find excuses for all the past however deserving of blame. As a necessary result of this condoning of evil is the oblivion which has fallen on sufferers for righteousness' sake. Who thinks now of the great army of martyrs, who, in our own land, have in time past laid down their lives for the truth? The oppressors are lauded, the oppressed are forgotten if not blamed. The persecutors are thought well of, the men and women whom they have trampled under foot and killed are forgotten. The following pages shew that, hidden from the eyes of the English nation, there are records of holy martyrs and confessors, suspected of what they called heresy, sometimes tracked out by spies, hunted, condemned, treated as the offscouring of all things by the body which laid claim to the title of the Catholic Church.

    This body still exists and makes the same claim. It has never disavowed its action or condemned the men who in its name committed these atrocities. And yet there are those who are straining every nerve to bring this nation into subjection to it again. For this purpose they attempt to put out of sight the truth of history, and hide iniquities in which the Church of Rome still glories. These suffering men and women were members of that Holy Catholic Church of which Christ is the Head, and which will only become visible when its Head appears. What calls itself the Church, and is in reality the Apostasy foretold by St. Paul, condemned them to death if they would not commit the idolatry of worshipping as God the consecrated Host. There are other things for which they also suffered martyrdom, but these saints of God, in East Anglia at all events, were enrolled in the noble army of martyrs mainly for their resistance to the doctrine of Transubstantiation and its necessary result in the idolatry of the Mass.
