Obscure Saint of the Day: St. Francis Page

Well, Catholic Hipsters, it's 4/20, and we all know what that means...

Happy Feast of St. Francis Page!

Unfortunately, when you Google "St. Francis Page," you only get coloring book pages of the other St. Francis.

Born into a Protestant family in Belgium, Francis reconciled with the Church. 

He moved to England, where he was ordained in the year 1600, and arrested just 2 years later. 

Francis Page entered the Society of Jesus while in prison, and was martyred for his faith in the year 1602. 

St. Francis Page, pray for us!
