Today is the feast day of the North American Martyr's!  These heroic saints lived incredible missionary lives and risked everything to come over to our country.  They were met at times with hostility by the Native Americans and at other times welcomed or tolerated.  They baptized and converted many to the faith.  Click here for a great biography on their lives.
