Pope Francis to Scots College: The courage of only 16 men have borne fruit in Scotland

2016-04-14

On Thursday, Pope Francis received members of the Pontifical Scots College in Rome. It has been 400 years since 16 young Scots return to their country clandestinely as priests to preach the Gospel in a Protestant territory.

They put their lives at risk. A year earlier, the priest John Ogilvie was tortured and killed there by celebrating Mass in secret.

POPE FRANCIS
"The 'yes' proclaimed by the 16 men 400-years-ago was eloquent not simply for their good intentions, but rather because they persevered, and prepared themselves in every way, returning to Scotland to face the hardships that awaited them, even if it meant becoming martyrs themselves.”

Pope Francis said those 16 priests "bore fruit in Scotland" and invited to take the example of their ardor to witness God's mercy.
