Episode 2 - This is dedicated to Our Lady Queen of Martyrs with a brief mention of St. John the Baptist, St. Steven, Bl. Dominic Barberi and St. Veronica Giuliani

In this the 2nd Episode of the Children of Mary dedicated to devotion to Mary we look at a Marian title in the Litany of Loreto 'Queen of Martyrs' in this episode during Holy week. We hear about the 'Spiritual Martyrdom' that is needed to be united to Christ who is the 'Bridegroom' and are given on two occasions a description of Mary's sorrows from Blessed Dominic Barberi of the Mother of God and later from some of the writings of St. Veronica Giuliani. There is also in a 'poetical form' a 'letter' written from 'the Friend of the Bridegroom' to a soul contemplating the religious life. Two examples of Martyrs who show a certain similarity to Christ are also presented - St. John the Baptist and St. Steven the Protomartyr.
