Questions asked during the trial of Saint John Gabriel Perboyre

More to explorer


  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.
