Martyrs of CeutaArticle

(Saints) Martyrs (October 13) (13th century) Saint Daniel, Provincial in Calabria of the newly-founded Franciscan Order, was sent by Saint Francis of Assisi, with six of his brethren to preach Christianity to the African Mohammedans. They landed at Ceuta in Morocco and at once applied themselves to their holy work; but arrested after a few days and at first treated as madmen, they were finally sentenced to be beheaded (A.D. 1221). Their bodies, torn to pieces by the populace, were collected by Christians and later carried over to Spain.
