A history of lived Faith with a surprising actuality


The young Vincentian Francis Schraven opts for a life as a missionary in China. A radical choice, which is also made by other Vincentians and a Trappist. When Francis embarks on August 31, 1899, in Marseille, he takes you along to a China of those times. He shows you which difficulties and dangers will be faced by the missionaries, the Daughters of Love, and by the Chinese. During the Japanese occupation of China in 1937 Francis, who is then a bishop, is again faced with a radical choice. Because of the decision he has made, he will be murdered together with eight other Europeans.

You will read about the motive for this murder in this historically authentic cartoon book.
