Lives Long Remembered: The Significance of the Martyrs’ Sacrifice in the Orthodox Christian Church: "Martyrs are remembered in the Orthodox Church. They were real living people. They felt real pain, the same as you and I, and the actual process of death was no different for them. Martyrs lived for their faith unto the end, ultimately giving up their lives for their faith in God. This is the ultimate thing that one can do for his/her salvation unto God and real people do this in the Orthodox Church."
