And Companions

On this day in 1980, I heard a sermon from a Jesuit friend of mine, (not the same one mentioned in yesterday's post), who said he dreaded being martyred with a lot of other martyrs, as then his name would not be on the calendar, except as "and companions."

Hmmm, only a Jesuit would think of that! Today is the feast Day of the 117 martyrs of Viet Nam,--St. Andrew Dung Lac AND COMPANIONS.
