In this compelling new book, Brian O’Neel tells the stories of martyrs associated with North America. Some are from other countries and died in their attempts to spread the faith on this continent. Some were born on this continent but died doing missionary work in other lands. Some were individual martyrs, and some were part of an heroic group. Some were “white martyrs” who, although they did not shed their blood for the faith, suffered much for the spread of their faith. Stock #: T36551

Much I didn't know...

Growing up in Central NY, I knew of St Kateri and the North American Martyrs, as well as St Marianne Cope (a "new" saint). I've also read about Fr Kapuan. Many of the other martyrs, especially the early ones however, I had never heard of. The Church has hundreds of saints, most of them we know nothing about. I'm glad to increase my knowledge of some of them at least.

Informative and as a Franciscan I never realized how many friary were martyred here…it as a quick read but very interesting.

150 North American Martyrs

I was not aware of most of these martyrs, including so many Franciscans! After each biography, the author gives a few sentences about why the martyr deserves out attention and devotion. He even has a brief prayer that’s relevant to the martyr’s life. Very interesting is Appendix B about George Washington!
