Two years, today, I became Catholic, thanks be to God! I love being Catholic. This date sneaked up on me, as I was thinking in terms of two Easter Vigils ago, and Easter is later this year.
This turns out to be the date of martyrdom of Saint Henry Walpole, a convert, priest, and Jesuit. He was present at the execution of Edward Campion, close enough to be splashed with Campion’s blood, and soon after that, he converted.
Saint Henry Walpole, pray for us!
