Today we celebrate the Memorial of St. Charles Lwanga and Companions, Martyrs. Charles Lwanga is an Ugandan Catholic martyred in Namungongo in 1886 by burning at the stake.
St. Justin Martyr is a Church Father and Apologist. A prolific writer, he is known for his outstanding and heroic defense of the truth of the divine faith of the Church.
