Frontispiece of Rizal Beyond the Grave book, 1950 #RizalDay2012

A Reiteration of the Greatness of the Martyr of Bagumbayan by Dr. Ricardo R. Pascual

Wenceslao Emilio Retana y Gamboa writing for El Renacimiento in December 29, 1908:

“…I believe that if there is heaven, and it is better that there be, Rizal did not need to be converted in order to win it. He shall win it by virtues of his whole life, by the goodness of his soul, by the altruism of his ideals, and not because he confessed or he received the sacrament.”
