26 Martyrs of Nagasaki

Today we honor St. Paul Miki & Companions, martyred for the faith in Nagasaki, Japan in 1597.  As we remember them, please pray for the Church in Japan.  

St. Paul Miki and Companions, your strength and courage in your faith and love for our Lord in the midst of great persecution challenges and inspires us to live out our own faith ever more boldly. By your living legacy, you reaffirm the true success of the efforts of St. Francis Xavier, Alessandro Valignano, and all those who labored for souls in Japan during the Christian century. May you and all the holy martyrs of Japan pray for us!
