In the early years of the Church martyrs were automatically considered as saints. However, in the modern Church, martyrdom is just part of the overall picture and the entire saint's life is investigated.

Both are saints but martyrs died for their faith. In Catholicism, all martyrs are saints but not all saints are martyrs.
