On November 6, the Marianist Family commemorates the faith, courage, and ultimate sacrifice of four Spanish Marianist martyrs: Bros. Sabino Ayastuy Errasti, SM, Joaquín Ochoa Salazar, SM, Florencio Arnáiz Cejudo, SM, and Fr. Miguel Léibar Garay, SM.

The video below was first published as a feature item in the November 2023 edition of our Newsletter and was accompanied by the following prayer:

"Lord, our God, who granted to the blessed martyrs Joaquín, Sabino, Florencio, and Miguel the grace of dedicating their lives to education under the guidance of the Blessed Virgin Mary and of courageously professing their faith, grant that we, strengthened by their witness, might give witness to our faith in word and deed. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen."
