Book of Saints – Botvid


BOTVID (Saint) Martyr (July 28) (11th century) A Swedish Christian, who endeavoured to convert to the Faith a captive from Finland. Having as he thought succeeded, he sought to restore the neophyte to freedom and to his own country, but while on the voyage was cruelly murdered by the thankless object of his compassion (A.D. 1100).
