Fire-breathing Catholics – St. Henry Morse

About to be martyred:

“Come, my sweetest Jesus, that I may now be inseparably united to thee in time and eternity:  welcome ropes, hurdles, gibbets, knives and butchery, welcome for the love of Jesus, my saviour.”

St. Morse’s story is almost absurd in its repetition.  Well, that’s one Jesuit who made the list…
