Brief biography and prayer to St. Lorenzo Ruiz
St. Lorenzo Ruiz had a Filipino mother and a Chinese
father. He was martyred in Nagasaki, Japan in 1637.
His feast day is 29 September. When faced with torture
and death, this courageous layman refused to renounce
his faith with these words: “I am a Catholic and I whole-
heartedly accept death fro my God; if I had a thousand lives, I would offer them all to Him.’
Let us pray: “Father, kayo sent your Word to bring us
truth, and your Spirit to make us holy. Emboldened
by that same Spirit, St. Lorenzo Ruiz suffered
martyrdom giving witness to the gospel. Give us the
same courage and boldness to proclaimer faith in
our lives. An through he intercession of
St. Lorenzo Ruiz, continue to bless your Church in
the Orient, so that all can know the name of
Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
