Edmund Arrowsmith, born in Lancashire of a Catholic family, chose to serve Christ and the people of England by becoming a Jesuit priest. His love for his country and queen could not supersede his love for Christ or the loyalty required of a son of the Church. He prayed for England just before he died, forgiving those who had brought him to the scaffold. The Church recognises him as one of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales.
