Quaccheri cristiani ecumenici per fare il bene

Chiediamo scusa se non pubblichiamo ogni giorno i martiri: li trovate nel sito mennonita

On this date in 1569 (May 16th), Dirk Willems was burned at the stake outside ‪#‎Asperen‬, Netherlands. Willems is the best-known of the ‪#‎Anabaptist‬ martyrs because of his story. He had escaped from prison and was being chased across a frozen river when one of his pursuers fell through thin ice. Dirk turned around, saved the man, was recaptured, and then executed.
