Saint Augustine Webster, Martyr Of England

Pictures do not seem to be working right now but I will do my best to get that back on track. In the meantime, please enjoy this short but powerful story of a great Martyr from England.

Pax Christi

"Saint Augustine Webster was an English Catholic martyr.
He was educated at Cambridge University. He became the prior of Our Lady of Melwood, a Carthusian house at Epworth, on the Isle of Axholme, North Lincolnshire, in 1531. He was imprisoned on the orders of Thomas Cromwell when he refused to take the Oath of Supremacy and was hanged, beheaded and quartered at Tyburn on May 4, 1535.
He was canonised in 1970 as one of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales"
