Defenders Of Faith In Word And Deed, The 40 Martyrs Of England And Wales, Catholic Series.

ClassicCatholicAudiobooks Feast Day: October 25 The forty Martyrs of England and Wales were Canonized in 1970 along with Campion, Howard and Southwell. Some of the most notable of these great Defenders of Faith were three Cathusians priests, Houghton, Lawrence & Webster who refused to take the oath against the Pope and renounce the catholic Church. Others martyrs include St. Cuthbert Maine, John Southwarth, Edmund Arrowsmith, Margaret Clitherow. Many were imprisoned and executed for attending and offering Holy Mass. This series seeks to examine Catholics who have defended the faith in word and deed by their wet martyrdom, (the shedding of blood) and dry martyrdom, (exclusion or banishment, persecution, imprisonment.) It is hoped that Catholics who view these programs will be strengthened in the Faith they profess by looking more closely at the lives of these who have sacrificed all in it’s defense. The Forty Martyrs of England and Wales are a group of Catholic men and women executed for treason and related offences between 1535 and 1679. Many were sentenced to death at show trials, or with no trial at all.
