St. Paul Miki & Companions

Paul, a young Japanese convert to Christianity, entered the seminary to become a Jesuit. The Japanese government was persecuting Christians at this time, and Paul was captured and sentenced to death. He prayed that God would forgive his captors, and he said to those standing nearby at his crucifixion, “Ask Christ to help you become happy.”
