Have you heard of the Georgia Martyrs?

The story of the Georgia martyrs is a fascinating one. They have been called, "martyrs for the sanctity of marriage."

I received this note from Paul Thigpen, the editor of The Catholic Answer magazine, and the coordinator behind an effort to further the cause of the Georgia Martyrs' canonization.
GEORGIA MARTYRS ON EWTN!

Dr. Paul Thigpen, coordinator of the Friends of the Georgia Martyrs, will be appearing as a guest on EWTN Live, a weekly TV series on the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). Hosted by Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ, the program will focus on the Georgia Martyrs and the cause of their canonization.

DATE: Wednesday, January 31, 2007

TIME: 8:00 TO 9:00 P.M. Eastern Time.

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD AND TUNE IN THAT EVENING TO JOIN US.

AND PRAY THAT THE BROADCAST WILL HELP FURTHER THE CAUSE OF THE MARTYRS' CANONIZATION.


You can learn more about the Georgia Martyrs at GeorgiaMartyrs.org and here, at Paul's website.

I'm going to set my DVR right now. That sounds so interesting. I had the opportunity to hear Paul Thigpen at an apologetics (mini) conference. I don't remember who else was there, but it was a remarkable day.

Jennifer,
We had the privilege of having him speak at our parish a few years ago, and he was great.

Rhere's also an article of his about the Georgia martyrs in the last issue of "The Catholic Answer" (which is the magazine he edits.)
