  1. Hopefully the Pope’s accord with the ChiComs will not cause priests martyrdom in China. This saint was a Vincentian priest assigned to mission work in China, He was cruelly martyred in 1840 when the Emperor re-instituted a persecution of Christians.

    St. John-Gabriel Perboyre, keep the Chinese priests safe so that they may continue to minister to Chinese Catholics.

  2. I was motivated to find his story and read it; his tortures were horrendous. I am with CAM: St. John-Gabriel Perboyre, keep the true Chinese priests safe and call the false “state” priests to conversion and repentance. May God bless and protect the Chinese Catholics.
