Story of the Life of Saint Edmund Campion, Executed for His Faith in Reformation England (and Whose Feast Day Is December 1)

He could have had it all, but instead became a priest serving Catholics who were forced underground by persecution during the English Reformation. For serving them, he was executed by the state.


St Edmund addressed the court and said: ‘In condemning us you condemn all your own ancestors… to be condemned by their degenerate descendants is both gladness and joy to us. God lives. Posterity will live.’
