How would you like to be martyred?
 
Okay when the antichrist reigns my hope is that He will allow us to decide How we want to be martyred.

Dont be sickened by this thread. It is beautiful to be persecuted and executed for love of Christ. St. Francis of Assissi was looking foward to the likely martyrdom that would take place when preaching to the muslims and from what I read He was disappointing when it didnt happen.

St. Anthony of Padua was a member of the Augustinians but saw some mutilated (dead) bodies of Franciscans return from Morroco and He became a Franciscan with the Hope of having a similar fate. He was overjoyed after seeing the martyrs and spoke to the Franciscan Superior saying "brother I would gladly put on the habit of the order if you would promise to send me as soon as possible to the land of the Saracens that I may gain the crown of the Holy Martyrs." About St. Anthony | St. Anthony Shrine

Okay so Martyrdom is beautiful!! Dont forget it! GOd loves it, the saints desired it. Martyrdom is a gift, a crown!

So if I could be martyred I would like to be decapitated like St. Paul and St. Thomas Moore.

My next choice would be a firing squad. To get hit by ten bullets at once must really be breathtaking! :D

If I were to get hung I'd request a 100 pound weight tied to both my feet to ensure that my neck would break TU:

I wouldnt want to drowned like Pope Clement. Drowning is scary. My closest near death experience while awake was getting caught in a countercurrent near a manmade **** and barely surviving. It is a terrible way to go.

I dont know about being slowly grilled like St. lawrence but He seemed to enjoy himself. Getting burned at the stake like they did in medieval times to Heretics actually wouldnt be that bad. THe pain from burning would be over in less than a minute. I had a burn on my forearm that went down to the muscle and once the nerves get completely fried theres no pain during or after the burn.

Getting killed by lions like St. Ignatius of Antioch would also not be too bad because im taught that hungry lions go for the neck.

What would you like?

The greatest martyrdom is not dying but having to live a full life span in a sick hedonistic semi pornographic GODLESS world!

I don't think its wise to want to be martyred. If it comes, we should try and be courageous, but not look forward to it, for I am sure God would only allow it, if it brought greater good from it.

You sound depressed to me, Matt.

I think someone invented that about St. Francis. He loved all life. If we want to be martyred, we are wanting others to sin.

Matt,

To be a martyr somebody must hate you first. Do you know anybody who hate you or your belief ? To be martyred they have to know you first, is it not ? Like Jesus, Paul, Peter, Isaiah, Stephen, John the Baptist ,James etc.

The Bible told us to believe in Jesus is to die to self first. If you,I or anybody still like or love our life in this world, then we are not ready to be martyred. Martyrdom is I believe a calling assigned by God.

Also unless we come out in the open we are not ready to be martyred. We also have to be genuinely in love with Jesus.

Paul did say He takes pleasure in persecution and suffering. Now im just saying if you were to be martyred and were sentenced to death but had your choice on how to go, what would be your choice?

Okay it's kind of a ridiculous question, I will admit, but death would be my final moment on this planet and my final moment in this mortal body so I'd kind of like to be beheaded, because I could still see and think until my brain ran out of oxygen, yet wouldnt be in pain and could mentally say one last prayer while im ahead of myself. Also, it would be so incredible to know that in a few seconds I'll be standing before Jesus.

Plus it might be interesting to be able to think and and see when the head is seperated from the body.

It gives a whole new meaning to quitting while you're a head
:)

Post mortem is sometimes referred to testing for alzheimers. Is that another way of saying you want to die of old age?

Are you talking about people finding your remains and doing an autopsy?
Or that you want to be mummified?

None of the above?

You'll have to excuse me your excellency but Im not the quickest of cats
