Saint Cuthbert MayneArticle

(Blessed) Martyr (November 29) (16th century) Blessed Cuthbert Mayne was the first of the Seminary priests ordained abroad to give his life in England for Christ. Born in Devonshire, he had been educated as a Protestant, but was converted to the True Faith while studying at Oxford. He was ordained priest at Douai, and then began to labour as a missionary priest in Cornwall; but before a year had elapsed, was arrested, tried and condemned to death, for the crime of having said Mass. He suffered near Launceston, A.D. 1577.
