Résister!

Marie Durand (1711-1776) was a prisoner in the Tour de Constance. She encouraged her sisters in Christ to fight against the temptation of abjuring their faith.

Engraved in the prison wall the word RESIST! Resisting temptation to commit suicide and resisting temptation to recant their faith for temporary freedom.
