Today's Saint: She Anticipated Today

Margaret Clitherow was arrested for the crime of harbouring Catholic priests.

Found guilty she was executed on Lady Day, 1586, which also happened to be Good Friday that year, in the Toll Booth at Ouse Bridge, by being crushed to death by her own door, as she refused to plead, thereby preventing a trial that would entail her three children being made to testify, and being subjected to torture.

She was beatified in 1929 by Pope Pius XI and canonised on 25 October 1970 by Pope Paul VI among the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales.

This is not the type of saint that the Novus Ordo Church would place at the centre today, because Margaret didn't compromise on the faith which today is called "ecumenism."
