Red crown of martrydom

If you are easily shocked or sensitive don't click on the following link-- I mean it. This picture is disturbing and yet the photo makes me wish I could paint. It should be an icon. Eternal rest grant unto them oh Lord.

“May all Christians be found worthy of either the pure white crown of a holy life or the royal red crown of martyrdom.” – St. Cyprian.
