Wonder if these were comfortable: St. Martin, martyred when he censured imperial documents which professed a heterodox teaching? (Apr 13) OR, Eustace, martyred for refusing to eat meat on a day of abstinence (Apr 14). OR, Ruadhan who cursed a King for violating the sanctuary of his monastery? (Apri 15). OR, Bernadette (Apr 16) who said: "The more I am crucified, the more I rejoice." OR, Mappalicus (Apr 17) martyred for refusing to sacrifice to the pagan gods. [Bet they're comfortable now!!!]

Is the furnishing of episcopal comfort a corporal or spiritual work of mercy?
