“The glories of the past were the beginning but you have to make the glory of the future”

“The Church in Uganda can never become accustomed to the distant memory of its martyrs. Martyr means witness. The Church in Uganda, to be faithful to this memory, must continue to be a witness. It can’t live ‘piggy-backing.’ The glories of the past were the beginning but you have to make the glory of the future. And this is the task that the Church gives to you. Be witnesses, as the martyrs who gave their lives for the Gospel were witnesses.”
–Pope Francis, 28 Nov 2015
