For a whole week, riot only bishop but all the priests and friars of the city (Exeter) visited Bennet night and day. But they tried in vain to prove to him that the Roman Church was the true one. "God has given me grace to be of a better Church," he said. "Do you know that ours is built upon St. Peter?" "The Church that is built upon a man," he replied, "is the devil's Church, and not God's."... At the place of execution he exhorted with such unction, that the sheriff's clerk exclaimed, "Truly this is a servant of God!" Two persons, going up to the martyr, exclaimed in a threatening voice, "Say, 'Precor sanctam Mariam et omnes sanctos Dei.'" "I know no other advocate but Jesus Christ," replied Bennet.
