The Book of Nehemiah

Dear Subscribers,

Thank you for your patience as I work through a cold that prevents me from doing the daily recordings. In the meantime, I have been able to go back and edit books that I have already completed to post the full recordings as individual chapters. So, if you missed any of the full Book of Nehemiah, check it out here.

THESE two glorious martyrs came from Rome to preach the Faith in Gaul toward the middle of the third century. Fixing their residence at Soissons, they instructed many in the Faith of Christ, which they preached publicly in the day, and at night they worked at making shoes, though they are said to have been nobly born, and brothers. The infidels listened to their instructions, and were astonished at the example of their lives, especially of their charity, disinterestedness, heavenly piety, and contempt of glory and all earthly things; and the effect was the conversion of many to the Christian faith. The brothers had continued their employment several years when a complaint was lodged against them. The emperor, to gratify their accusers and give way to his savage cruel, gave orders that they should be convened before Biotin’s Varus, the most implacable enemy of the Christians. The martyrs were patient and constant under the most cruel torments, and finished their course by the sword about the year 287.

Reflection.—Of how many may it be said that “they labor in vain,” since God is not the end and purpose that inspires the labor?
