Frederick Bachstein & 13 of his confreres of the Order of Friars Minors beatified.

[After today’s Angelus the Holy Father greeted those gathered in St. Peter’s Square, he said:

Dear brothers and sisters!

Yesterday in Prague Frederick Bachstein and 13 of his confreres of the Order of Friars Minors were beatified. They were killed in 1611 because of their faith. They are the first persons who have been beatified in the Year of Faith, and they are martyrs: they remind us that believing in Christ also means suffering with him and for him.
