Saint Charles Lwanga and Companions | Saint of the Day

Charles Lwanga and his companions became Christians through the Catholic missions of the Missionaries of Africa (commonly known as the White Fathers). Charles’ predecessor as master of royal pages, also a Christian, had censured King Mwanga of Uganda for his cruelty and immorality.

The vengeful king, determined to stamp out Christianity, ordered Charles and the other young Christian pages put to death. About 100 died during the persecution. Within a year of these deaths, however, the number of Christians had greatly increased, and by 1890 was estimated to be ten thousand.

The 22 Martyrs of Uganda died on June 3, 1886 and were canonized in 1964. Charles Lwanga has been declared patron of Catholic Action and of black African youth.
