Holy Martyrs of China  (d. 1648-1930 AD)

Feast Day: July 9


On October 1st, 2000, Pope John Paul II canonized 120 martyrs of China. Of the 120 saints, 87 are Chinese and 33 are foreign missionaries. Among them are 6 bishops, 23 priests, 8 monks (one of whom is a novice), 7 nuns and 76 lay people (two of whom were catechumens). According to historical records, the Catholic faith was officially introduced to China during the Yuan Dynasty (13th century). From the Yuan Dynasty to the present, great sacrifices are still being made for the faith. Let us imitate their faithfulness and unyielding love for Christ. At the same time, let us also pray in communion with the faithful Catholics in China.
