450 years ago in England, under the reign of the Roman Catholic, Queen Mary, or Bloody Mary as she became known, and during the reformation of the church here in England, 288 people were burnt at the stake for their Protestant faith. Few of the martyr’s final words are more stirring than those of Bishops Hugh Latimer to Nicholas Ridley as they were tied together at the stake and burnt alive in Oxford, on 16th October 1555. As the fire was lit Latimer said to his friend, “Be of Good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man; we shall this day light such a candle, by God’s grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out.”
