Blessed Benedict Daswa, Martyr

“By his courage and his fidelity to the Catholic faith, the Servant of God Tshimangadzo Samuel Benedict Daswa is a model for all peoples in Africa. Through his beatification, they will understand that belonging to the Catholic faith implies a radical choice of Jesus as Lord and Saviour and a complete rejection of religious syncretism.” Bp. H. Slattery MSC – 2015

“Blessed Benedict Daswa was not shy about showing his Catholicism in front of people. He was well known in his village as a man of considerable influence. As an upright and forthright person he was not concerned about what others thought.” Fr Bohas, MSC – 2015

“One of the members of the mob said, ‘Listen to him, he is dying-still he prays to his God’. Benedict’s moral stand against witchcraft cost him his life.. he paid the ultimate price of being a Christian.” Fr Bohas, MSC – 2015
