“Whoever does not embrace the Catholic Christian faith is lost, like your false prophet Muhammad.”
Saint Peter Mavimenus (8th century), martyr from Gaza.

This was his response as reported in the Martyriologum Romanum when it was demanded by a group of Muslims that he convert to Islam. He was slain by them in Damascus, 743A.D.
