Saint Quote of the Day: Saint Gonsalo Garcia
My good friend, God be with you. I am going to heaven. A hearty hug to Fr. Sabastian Gonsalves on my behalf.
-- Saint Gonsalo Garcia to a friend on the day of his martyrdom
Note: Saint Gonsalo Garcia is one of the 26 Martyrs of Nagasaki. He is unique, not only for his being one of the martyr's, but also because he was the first native of India to be canonized a saint. He was canonized, along with the other Martyr's of Nagasaki by Pope Blessed Pius IX in 1862.
