#monstersamongus here is another poem that I am using as an act of protest and defiance titled #inkofthejournalist Title: Ink of the Journalist Carving stories with facts Or claims for everyone to see. Twisting and cutting out A belief that caters to your followers. Uplift or downplay a cause to Get the attention you so crave - And need to get your point across. It does not matter until you begin To speak the truth. I spy. I see.  Recording and photographing of what You see. Playing detective and reporter Just to spread the word everywhere. But its all fun and games until You have a target on your back. With each newspaper or post Someone ends up dead Or disappears. Spilling ink because there are soiled Secrets that certain people refuse To have exposed. Burning all of your works - The very thing that granted you immortality Through your words - you live. Dirty enigmas everywhere The masses cannot know. Journalists continue to disappear When they get to close. The ink of the writer gets spilled When those in power try to rule with an iron fist. Sewing their lips shut  So not one word escapes their parted lips. ur overseers are dying in the  Name of gifting us insight. Only to accept their fate  As the next martyr. #journalist #poetry #martyrs #blackgirlmagic #freehongkong #blacklivesmatter

It's always great moments in Uganda whenever it comes to 3rd June of every year as the Christians from corners of the world move to namugongo martyrs shrines to pray and commemorate the event since kabaka mwanga || ordered for the execution of all to the young boys who refused to denounce their faith. As this has been the usual routine for people to travel to this destination in 100years , this year it wasn't the same as people prayed from their homes because of the covid-19. As the matter of fact 22 Uganda martyrs are also known to be the first black saints #martyr #martyrs #martysday #lockdown #travelonline #martyrdom #blacksaints #christianity #christian #history #facts #traveldaily #travelwithme #visituganda #uganda🇺🇬 #uganda #ugandatravel #instatravel #instagood #instadaily #travelphotography #traveldairies #travelgrams #travelgram #ugandamartyrs #stayhome #staysafe

Happy Feast Day: Saint Charles Lwanga and Companions This group of twenty-two martyrs is led by Charles Lwanga, a convert and catechist, who served the tribal King Mwanga in southern Uganda. Despite having seen his predecessor, Joseph Mkasa, die a victim to Mwanga’s rage against Christians, Charles continued to instruct his catechumens, Mwanga’s young pages, encouraging them to resist the king’s daily requests to commit unnatural and unchaste acts. In May of 1886, Mwanga retaliated by ordering the execution of all the Christians at his court. Charles secretly baptized four of his charges that night, and the next day they were marched to the place of execution. On June 3, 1886, the feast of the Ascension, Charles was the first to be burned to death, calling out, “Katonda wange—My God! O God, who have made the blood of Martyrs the seed of Christians, mercifully grant that the field which is your Church, watered by the blood shed by Saints Charles Lwanga and his companions, may be fertile and always yield you an abundant harvest. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. #feastday #martyrs #stcharleslwanga #stcharleslwangaandcompanions #christianity #christian #catholic #catholicchurch #saints

“Kristu abagumye
Era abawe omukisa. May Christ comfort you,
and may he bless you” Today is the Memorial of St. Charles Lwanga and Companions, the martyrs of Uganda. Charles Lwanga was a page in the royal court of Mwanga, the king of the Baganda in the south of what is now Uganda. Mwanga was young and his country was under many outside pressures. He became mentally unstable and increasingly hostile to Christians. When Joseph Mkasa, the master of the pages and a Catholic catechist, tried to protect the younger pages from the rages and sexual advances of the king, Joseph was beheaded. Charles Lwanga, also a Catholic, was appointed to succeed him. One morning the king assembled the pages and told those who were Christians to stand apart. When they said they intended to remain Christians, they were burned to death. One of their executioners reported that the young men prayed softly as they died. Those martyred by Mwanga included both Catholics and other Christians. Charles and his companions were beatified in 1920 and canonized in 1964. St. Charles Lwanga is the patron saint of African youth. #bible #gospel #bibleverse #salvation #faith #grace #jesus #jesusislord #christ #christian #biblical #holyspirit #mass #jesuschrist #god #holymass #catholic #catholicchurch #truth #scripture #catholics #catholicism #apostolic #biblestudy #feastday #martyrs #SaintCharlesLwanga #SaintCharlesLwangaandCompanions #saintoftheday #catholicsaints

Biennale of Sydney , Art Gallery of New South Wales . Josep Gau- Garriga , born in Spain (1929 ) , died In France ( 2011 ) . A masterwork such as one seldom experiences . A hymn to martyrs through the ages -captured via the medium of tattered textile which hangs - knotted , knitted , woven & wrestled in to twisted shapes - from hard steel scaffolding. (Having just completed Hilary Mantel’s third volume in her Tudor trilogy ( The Mirror and the Light ) & living imaginatively this past month through years of English King Henry VIII ‘s barbaric reign (steered by commoner Thomas Cromwell) - I feel as if I have spent recent weeks in the company of martyrs . Variably in Henry’s England , these so called heretics and traitors suffered fates which included hanging, beheading, flaying , racking , burning , imprisoning & isolating .Josep Gau -Garriga’s work honours past victims of tyrants - together with the hundreds of millions of blameless victims felled by Pinochet , Idi Amin , Hitler , Stalin , Mao and many more - not forgetting today’s sufferers living under the yoke of despots in North Korea & in many parts of decolonised Africa . The list goes on and on and on w the focus in this Biennale on the first peoples of the world , on people of colour & on the (variably ) marginalised across the globe . Grau- Garriga’s large scale, yet essentially modest work, serves to capture their presence & their pain . A tour de force and a chef d’oeuvre . Bravo to philanthropists Andrew and Cathy Cameron for supporting this Biennale project and to Biennale Artistic Director Brook Andrew for his extraordinary vision and creativity. #biennaleofsydney #martyrs #politicalprisoners #justice #textileartists #biennaleofsydney2020

I didn't know whether to write this post or not and even as I type this I'm still so indecisive. But I believe the intercession of saints in our lives is so powerful and something happened 2 days ago that I'm finding very hard to ignore or dismiss as mere coincidence.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So 2 days ago I came across a beautiful painting of Jesus, where He wasn't white washed as He usually is. I was browsing the artist's Instagram when I saw a painting of a saint I didn't recognise (posted in January of this year) so I clicked the post to read more. His name was Charles Lwanga and he was a Catholic convert who was martyred in Namugongo, Uganda along with 21 other Christians (both Catholic and Anglican). Truth be told I've only recently been learning more about Catholic saints in general (there are so many and they all lived such inspirational lives) but I haven't done much to learn about those who were PoC and I'm determined to change this! As much as I hate to admit it, Catholicism can be very Eurocentric💔⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ A few hours later I realised I hadn't changed my calendars to June. Now, I have 2 calendars. One is a secular calendar with photos of dogs that I got as a gift. The other is a smaller calendar I'd bought from someone during a train journey (it too has animals on it hehe). This one actually turned out to be a Catholic calendar with all important feast days marked (in German though)! As I turned this calendar to June, my eye caught a name. CHARLES LWANGA. I couldn't believe it! His feast day turned out to be 2 days from then (3rd June). I didn't actually know how to react but I felt that something powerful was happening that I couldn't see. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So today, on the feast day of Charles Lwanga and his companions, I ask them to intercede and pray for humanity, especially for racial justice both in America and elsewhere in the world. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I am always inspired by the stories of martyrs so here's a little bit about Charles Lwanga. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ On June 3, 1886, the Feast of the Ascension, Charles Lwanga was separated from the other martyrs and burned at the stake, after having asked his executioners if he could prepare his own funeral pyre. ⁣ ⁣ {Continued in COMMENTS}

3 juni: H. Charles Lwanga en gezellen/HH. Martelaren van Oeganda (overleden tussen 1885-1887). De 22 martelaren werden in 1920 zalig en in 1964 heilig verklaard. Charles Lwanga is uitgeroepen tot patroon van de Afrikaanse jeugd en 3 juni tot nationale feestdag van Oeganda. Koning (Kabaka) Mwanga II was aanvankelijk goedgezind voor de christenen die kwamen missioneren maar ging ze vervolgen toen hij vreesde voor ondermijning van zijn gezag. Vele christenen vonden de dood, waaronder Charles Lwanga, de hoofdpage aan het hof, en zijn gezellen. De reden dat Charles werd opgepakt, lag niet alleen in het feit dat hij christelijk was, anderen bekeerde en zijn geloof niet wilde afzweren, maar ook in het feit dat hij kritiek had op de koning, die zich graag vergreep aan de jonge pages. Charles werd met 22 gezellen in strooien matten gelegd en langzaam verbrand. Op de plek waar Charles en zijn gezellen levend werden verbrand, in Namugongo, werd in 1968 een basiliek voor de martelaren gebouwd en in 1975 voltooid. Dit is de meest bezochte bedevaartplaats van Afrika, waar elk jaar tienduizenden pelgrims naartoe komen. Het altaar staat precies op de plek waar de martelaren zijn verbrand en de tweeëntwintig koperen pilaren waarmee de basiliek gebouwd is, staan symbool voor hen. #namugongo #namugongomartyrsshrine #uganda #oeganda #martyrsofuganda #martyrs #stcharleslwanga #youth #jeugd #afrika #africa #holy #heilig #heilige #heiligen #saint #catholicsaint #catholic #catholics #catholicfaith #catholicchurch #faith #believe #geloof #christianity #pilgrimage #bedevaart #blacklivesmatter

With the breaking of the final seal, all is silent in heaven as an angel gathers up the prayers of the saints to present them with incense before the Lord (cp. Luke 1:10, 21). When the fifth seal was broken, we saw the souls under the altar crying out that the Lord avenge their blood. This is first-century Israel's last chance to repent of their rejection of the Lord and persecution of his saints; he has heard the cries of his people and vengeance is about to come swiftly (Rom. 12:19). . . . . . #seventhseal #sevenseals #silenceinheaven #prayersofthesaints #prayer #martyrs #postmillennial #postmillennialism #postmillennialismistruth

Charles Lwanga and Companions (D. 1886) In the 1880s, Catholic and Protestant missionaries introduced Christianity into the Ugandan kingdom of Buganda. The spread of the faith caused witch doctors and chiefs to fear for their power. So they persuaded young King Mwanga that the new religion would undermine his authority. . The eighteen-year-old ruler was unstable, alcoholic, and addicted to sexual relations with boys. When Joseph Mukasa, the Catholic captain of the king's pages, rebuked him for his debauchery and for slaughtering a Protestant missionary, he determined to uproot Christianity from Buganda. Because Mukasa protected Christian pages from his advances, Mwanga had him beheaded in November 1885. . In May 1886 the king tried to seduce a page and discovered that another young man had been instructing him in the faith. Livid with rage, he drove a spear through the catechist's neck. Then he demanded that all the Christian pages renounce their faith but they chose death. He rounded up the Christian pages, Catholic and Protestant alike. On June 3, 1886, he had them executed at Namugongo, a place of ritual sacrifice. . Charles Lwanga, a young Catholic leader, had succeeded Mukasa as majordomo of the pages. Like his predecessor, he encouraged the faith of the Christians and insulated them from Mwanga's perversions. So he was one of the first to be martyred on a pyre. . Then the other pages were stripped, wrapped in reed mats, piled on a huge pyre, and burnt alive. “We have killed many people, but never such as these. On other occasions, victims did nothing but moan and weep. There was not a sigh, not even an angry word. All we heard was a soft murmur on their lips. They prayed until they died.” said one executioner. That day, thirteen Catholics, eleven Protestants, and eight unbaptized seekers, ranging in age from thirteen to twenty-five, offered their lives in the flames. . One of the martyrs said prophetically, “A well that has many sources never runs dry. When we are gone, others will come after us." Already by 1890, the number of Christians in Buganda was estimated at ten thousand. . . . . 📷: ⭐@fiatlux1.3 ⭐ . Inspired by Bert Ghezzi (Voices of the Saints)

He was 25 (my age!?) and had only been baptized for 8 months when he defended 21 boys from the lust of the king of Buganda. . He was slowly tortured by being burnt starting at his feet and ending at his head. He proclaimed to his executioner, "It is as if you are pouring water on me. Please repent and become a Christian like me." . Having been totally rejected by the world, now St. Charles Lwanga is the patron of those tortured. . Jesus was thinking of St. Charles Lwanga and his 21 companions when he proclaimed: . “Blessed are those who are persecuted for the sake of justice, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" (Mt 5). . May this be said of us as well. . . #charleslwanga #uganda #martyrs #beatitude #baptism #christian #catholic #protestant
