Book of Saints – John Stone


(Blessed) Martyr (May 23) (16th century) The English Menology commemorates this Holy Martyr on May 23, though neither the day nor the year of his death have so far been ascertained. He was an Augustinian Friar, and is believed to have won his Crown at the outset of the persecution, about A.D. 1538. He has always been venerated as one of the victims of the Anti-Catholic policy of Henry VIII. His place of martyrdom was Canterbury.
