Father Jean-Juste, one can see by the outpouring of love, sorrow, affection, admiration, gratitude, and remembrance that you did right by your community in Sainte Claire Parish, in Little Haiti, in Port-au-Prince, in Miami, at sea and under the sea, washed ashore or eaten by sharks, in courtrooms, in factories, in detention centers, in jails, in transit, here and there, neither here nor there. You loved them all and you fought for justice with every breath you took. You are a hero of our true independence. We will keep your spirit alive, in the struggle and in victory, always.
~
Guy Antoine,

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."
