Franciscan Friar Minor. Priest, celebrating his first Mass on 30 July 1925. Vicar in Lezhë, Albania where he was arrested and tortured by Communist authorities; they tried to get him to say that his brother Franciscans gathered for political reasons and were plotting against the state. It was a lie, and Father Serafin refused to “confess” to save himself. Martyr.
