Saint Charles Lwanga is one of the martyrs of Uganda, killed during King Mwanga’s reign. In 1879, the White Fathers (Society of Missionaries of Africa) welcomed by Mwanga’s father, came and started to evangelize Uganda.  Mwanga, violent and a pedophile, came to power in 1884. He hated the Christians of the court, especially because they kept the royal pages away from his advances. St. Charles was the page’s guide, instructing them about the faith. When they would not renounce the faith, Mwanga ordered them to be executed. 13 Catholics and 11 Anglicans were martyred. They said, “You can burn our bodies but you cannot harm our souls.”
