Latimer and Ridley

Anglican Bishop Hugh Latimer as he was being burned at the stake in 1555 in England:  "Be of good comfort, Mr. Ridley, and play the man!  We shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust will never be put out."

Anglican Bishop Nicolas Ridley just before he was burned at the stake along with Latimer:  "So long as the breath is in my body, I will never deny my Lord Jesus Christ and his known truth.  God's will be done in me.  I commit our cause to Almighty God, who will indifferently judge all.  There is nothing hid but it shall be opened."
