The Feast of St. Paul Miki, S.J., and Companions, Marytrs
is today. There is information on St. Paul Miki here and on the rest of these incredible witnesses to Christ here.

"The only reason for my being killed is that I have taught the doctrine of Christ. I thank God it is for this reason that I die. I believe that I am telling the truth before I die. I know you believe me and I want to say to you all once again: Ask Christ to help you become happy. I obey Christ. After Christ's example, I forgive my persecutors. I do not hate them. I ask God to have pity on all, and I hope my blood will fall on my fellow men as a fruitful rain."- Saint Paul Miki, S.J.
