THE MARTYRED Christ of the working class, the inspired evangel of the downtrodden masses, the worlds supreme revolutionary leader, whose love for the poor and the children of the poor hallowed all the days of his consecrated life, lighted up and made forever holy the dark tragedy of his death, and gave to the ages his divine inspiration and his deathless name.
