In 1885, the king of Uganda gave his countrymen and women a choice: They could follow him, or they could follow Jesus, but they could not do both. Charles Lwanga and his companions chose Jesus. For their defiance, 22 Ugandan Christians, including Saint Charles Lwanga, were martyred. May we remember their courageous and unshakable faith during our own challenging times.
Saint Charles Lwanga and companions, pray for us!
