Charles Lwanga, Martyr.
Born in Buganda (modern Uganda) in1860 or 1865, martyred June 3rd 1886.
Charles was a convert to Christianity and a page of King Mwanga. Charles
instructed the younger pages in the Catholic faith and tried to
safeguard the boys, aged about 13 to 30, from the King. He was executed
by being burned to death for refusing to renounce his faith during a
persecution of Catholics and Protestants by King Mwanga.
Charles is celebrated as a saint with his 22
Catholic companions, known as the Martyrs of Uganda, on 3rd June.
Although his Protestant companions could not be canonised they were
named together with the Catholics by Pope Paul VI as enduring 'death for
the name of Christ.'
