40 Martyr reflections

Have a scroll through Bashing Secularism for reflections that Richard Marsden has been posting on the 40 English and Welsh Martyrs canonised by Pope Paul VI in 1970. He is humbly contrite about not posting all of them during Lent but I think we can all forgive him for that - they form an excellent series and he has promised continuing posts during Eastertide.

The English and Welsh martyrs are far too little known among Catholics in their own countries. If you don't know much about the martyrs, reading the reflections on Bashing Secularism is a good way to catch up.
