Tuesday 24th of November
St Andrew Dung-Lac & Companions
Today the Church celebrates the memorial of St. Andrew Dung-Lac, priest and martyr, and companions, martyrs. St. Andrew was one of 117 people who were martyred in Vietnam between 1820 and 1862. The last of the martyrs were 17 lay people, one of them a 9-year-old, executed in 1862.
Wednesday 25th of November
St Catherine of Alexandria - early 4th century.
Although she was a teenager, she was very intelligent and gifted. When the emperor Maxentius began persecuting Christians, Catherine visited him to denounce his cruelty.
Rather than order her execution, Maxentius summoned fifty orators and philosophers to debate with her. Moved by the power of the Holy Spirit, she spoke eloquently in defense of her faith. Her words were so moving that several converted to Christianity and were immediately executed.
Unable to intimidate her into giving up her beliefs, the emperor ordered her to be imprisoned and tortured, and then martyred.
