It is estimated that, between 1630 and 1886, up to 300,000 Christians were martyred in Vietnam. In this particular group, commemorated today, there were 117 Vietnamese Christians. We give thanks for their generous witness, seen in the lives of Vietamese priests and people today, even in our own Archdiocese.

May St Andrew Dung-Lac pray for us in our own witness for the truth, and may God bless you this day.
