A CHILD MY CHOICE

ST. ROBERT SOUTHWELL SJ (1561-1595)

 

This season's words from our saints are three Christmas poems by

Saint Robert Southwell SJ (1561-1595). After train-

ing as a Jesuit in France and Italy, Southwell worked as a Catholic priest under cover in his native England, and, when his ministry was discovered, was imprisoned in the Tower of London and executed for high treason. He was canonized by Pope Paul VI in 1970.
