February 6 - St. Paul Miki and companions
Due to a hectic weekend, I have not yet updated the Oral History section. I will do that by the end of this week.
If you don't read Saint-a-Day, I like to post a short summary from there that tells you everything quickly. Here's a snippet from today's installment.
"St. Paul Miki, a Jesuit catechist, had been a great preacher. His last valiant homily came from the cross as he encouraged the Christian community to be faithful until death. It was February 5, 1597.
St. Paul Miki and his companions were proclaimed saints by Pope Gregory XVI in 1862.
Stop for a moment today to pray for Christians who are persecuted throughout the world."
