While he stayed alive, however, he kept on mouthing his petitions and love.


They tossed him into jail for the night with the goal of further tormenting him. The first part of the day in the event that he endured. Yet he didn’t endure the night. Theodore died but the writings he had so affectionately duplicated were replicated over and over by yet other people who grabbed his work and proceeded with his livelihood.
