Saint Charles Lwanga and Companions, June 4

"Who could foresee that with the great historical figures of African martyrs and confessors like Cyprian, Felicity and Perpetua and the outstanding Augustine, we should one day list the beloved names of Charles Lwanga, Matthias Mulumba Kalemba and their twenty companions?" (Paul VI, Homily on the occasion of the canonization of the Uganda Martyrs, 18 October 1964).

The blood of martyrs nourishes the seed bed of the Chruch.


Thanks to Charles Lwanga and his companions my parish s graced by two Holy Priests from Uganda, Fr John and Fr Charles.
