‘A saintly man but a lousy king’
A fair assessment by Fr Peter Robinson of King Charles I, whose martyrdom is commemorated by some today, and Tsar Nicholas II, about whom you can read by searching this blog or Google
Charles Stuart, his piety notwithstanding, was not at all shy about supporting the murder of Roman Catholics (including, among others, S. Edmund Arrowsmith) who got in the way of his political machinations.

Some of us are keeping the feast of S. Martina, V.M., and perhaps invoking the intercession of the Holy Martyrs of England and Wales against the errors of protestantism and erastianism.
- Paul Goings
