Aleteia, Larry Peterson: His Muslim captors sensed and actually revered the sanctity of their prisoner. They told him if he would never say anything against Mohammad they would give him his freedom. He said he could never make such a promise. Shortly thereafter, as Bishop Peter Paschal was saying his thanksgiving after Mass, an executioner came up from behind him and cut off his head. The date was January 6, 1300. He was beatified and canonized by Pope Clement X on August 14, 1670. Article is here.
