Today is the feast day of St. Edmund Campion. I've always had a soft spot for Campion, and all those spiffy english Martyrs; I remember sitting in my European History class in 6th grade, reading about the English Reformation, and being in complete awe of Edmund Campion's bravery and spirit.
That devotion only grew when I attended Campion College of San Francisco, which took to heart Campion's dedication to learning, philosophy, and faith.
So, take a moment today to read Campion's Brag. I find it courageous and stirring, but you should read it if for no other reason that that it's a great piece of rhetoric.
