Item Description...
Overview
Millions of Catholics populate the Philippines and India, while Asian and Pacific Island Catholics in the U.S.A represent ever-increasing proportions, and the worldwide Church is reaping the benefits. Relative to the rather recent introduction of Catholicism, Asia has a high number of saints, most of them martyrs. Among the heroic stories of the holy men and women in Asia are Andrew Dung Lac An Tran, and Saint Paul Miki, S.J., who was reported to have said his position on the cross was the noblest pulpit he had ever filled. After being crucified, he and twenty-five other martyrs were systematically slain by a sword that pieced their hearts. Besides the official martyrs, approximately thirty thousand Chinese Catholics were killed during the two-month Boxer Rebellion in China in 1900. Also told are stories of those well-known saints who ministered extensively on the continent, including Francis Xavier and Blessed Teresa of Calcutta. The number of Catholics has burgeoned across Asia in recent centuries, yet persecution against the property and lives of Catholics and Christians continues to this day.

Informative, amazing tales of martyrs and saints in Asia  Mar 20, 2010
Have you heard about the Thai Bloods? They were a group of Buddhists, who, in the year 1939, bonded together to attack Catholicism. They saw to it that "Catholic schools, hospitals, and churches were closed, and many staff members were imprisoned and tortured" (p 21). Nicholas Kitbamrung, a Thai priest, died from the ill treatment in prison.

All across Asia, people were murdered for their Catholic faith. In Japan, from 1597 to 1650, Japanese Catholics suffered martyrdom virtually every year...ten of thousands of Catholics died" (p 35). St Miki died calling on God to pardon those who were killing him.

The faith of new converts is breathtaking to read about. Little Paul Chong Ha-sang was only six when his father and older brother were martyred. Bravely, when he turned twenty, Paul set out to "re-invigorate the country's scattered, frighted, and priestless Catholics" (p 145). He even wrote to the Pope, begging for new priests. And some did come, and began instructing Paul to become a priest.

Soon after the Korean officials began a fierce persecution. Paul was singled out for especially brutal torture because he was considered a leader among the Catholics.

An interesting collection of stories about saints we know little about in the west.
