Feast Day of Edmund Campion

I enjoy browsing international sites to find those saints that we do not honor in the Liturgy of the Hours in the United States. One of those saints is Edmund Campion, who was martyred in England during the reign of Queen Elizabeth.

On this day in 1581, he has hung, drawn and quartered for being nothing more than a Catholic priest caring for the Catholics in Protestant England. You can read about him HERE.
