Saint Kizito      

Graham, 26 & from the United Kingdom: "I think he is a saint especially for our time, with all the problems with marriage and with sexual immorality and with abuse in all sorts of area of the world, especially in Holy Mother Church. I think he’s a real incredible witness to purity and to joy and I think we could all seek his intercession."

Kizito (1872 - 3 June 1886, from Uganda) was one of the youngest of the martyrs of Uganda, slain by the King Mwanga II of Buganda. He was baptized on 25/26 May 1886 by Charles Lwanga (also martyred) & burnt alive on 3 June 1886. He was canonized on 18 October 1964 by Pope St Paul VI. Feast day - 3rd June.
