Saturdays with the Saints Fall 2013: 20th Century Martyrs

In this Year of Faith, Saturdays with the Saints features men and women who have borne witness to their faith with their lives, and in particular, martyrs of the 20th Century.

On September 28, Daniel Philpott, professor of political science and peace studies, will present “Today’s Christian Martyrs: Learning from the Sant’Egidio Icon of the New Martyrs.”

More Christians have been martyred in the past century than in all previous centuries. Who are they? What have they been martyred for? And how can Catholics stand in solidarity with them?
