Remembered by name.

In my last post I spoke about visiting the site of the execution of the Oaten Hill Martyrs; Catholics who were executed for the Faith on 1st October 1588, just south of the old city walls of Canterbury. I should have remembered these great witnesses by name; they are:
Blessed Robert Wilcox, priest.
Blessed Edward Campion, priest.
Blessed Christopher Buxton, priest.
Blessed Robert Widmerpool, layman.
They offered themselves for the good of the Church in this country at the gallows which, formerly, stood on the site pictured above. The grace of their witness has marked this land for Christ.
