How appropriate to wake and read that today we celebrate the Feast Day of St. Andrew Dung-Lac and Companions, martyred in Vietnam between 1820 and 1862! May we pray for his intercession during these times of threatening war between North and South Korea. "You will even be handed over by parents, brothers, relatives, and friends, and they will put some of you to death. You will be hated by all because of my name, but not a hair on your head will be destroyed. By your perseverance you will secure your lives.”
God grant them peace!
