St. John Ogilvie - Saints & Angels - Catholic Online



St John Ogilvie, Roman Catholic Jesuit Priest and Scottish Martyr. After three trials, John was convicted of high treason because he converted Protestants to the Catholic Faith as well as denied the king's spiritual jurisdiction by upholding the Pope's spiritual primacy and condemning the oaths of supremacy and allegiance. Sentenced to death, the courageous priest was hanged at Glasgow in 1615 at the age of thirty-six. His feast day is March 10.
