ST. CHARLES LWANGA & COMPANIONS

MEMORIAL: JUNE 3

St. Charles Lwanga and the Ugandan martyrs lived in the late 19th century. They were pages in the court of the King. The King would use young men under the age of 30 for his homosexual desires. When missionaries came, many of the pages converted to Christianity. The leaders in the king’s court who also had turned Christian began to strategically protect the boys. The King was enraged and ordered all the Christian men of his court to be executed. St. Charles and his companions joyfully accepted their martyrdom because of their hope in heaven.
