Pope John Paul in 2000 canonized 120 Chinese martyrs. The 87 native Chinese and 33 foreign missionaries, who washed their robes clean in the blood of the lamb (Rev. 7), were killed from 1648 to 1930. Their feast day is today. Check out this awesome painting.

Get holy or die trying. This morning I put on this t-shirt (hoodie pic) my sister gave me without realizing it was the feast of the Chinese Martyrs.
Holy martyrs of China, pray for us!
