St. Edmund Campion, English martyr

Yesterday, December 1, was the feast of St. Edmund Campion, priest and martyr.
His heroic life of service during the bloody persecution of English Catholics demonstrates the great witness of one who loved Jesus above all and His Church, even to the shedding of blood. He is a remarkable example and intercessor for our own day; our times require great courage, fortitude, faith and especially, love: for God, for His Church, for our neighbor. St. Edmund Campion, pray for us!
