St. Edmund Campion, SJ, has been honored at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin at Oxford, as reported by Mark Silk; "I'm happy to report that St Mary's now commemmorates Campion and 21 other men of his era with a plaque that reads at the top: REMEMBER THE MARTYRS OF THE REFORMATION. BOTH CATHOLIC AND PROTESTANT WHO LIVED IN OXFORDSHIRE TAUGHT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD OR WERE BROUGHT HERE FOR EXECUTION.  Read the rest at Spiritual Politics.

James Martin, SJ
