"A martyr for the Church"
Christine at Laudem Gloriae links to this cool story about a priest who died on the Titanic.
"He regularly gave masses on the Titanic, and was strolling along the deck reciting the Breviary when the ship was struck. He spent the rest of his time consoling and calming others, helping women and children into lifeboats. He was twice offered a seat but refused, remaining behind to give absolution and pray the Rosary with other passengers. He died along with 1500 others in the North Atlantic, and his body was never recovered."
