St Mellitus and the Melanesian Martyrs

are remembered in our calendar today. I just love the way in which it takes us on an annual round-the-world tour and across the centuries too. A powerful antidote to our anxious narrow focusses whatever our theology of the saints.

One thought on “St Mellitus and the Melanesian Martyrs

  1. Monica Attias of Sant’Egidio has written a book about the Melaesian Martyrs. There is also a tribute to them in the Church of St Bartolomeo in Rome. Thank you for bringing them to our attention.
