STO. TOMAS KHUONG, Dominican Tertiary

Thomas Khuông belonged to a noble family on Tokin and was a well son of a Mandarin. A Christian since childhood, he became a Dominican Tertiary. He was imprisoned many times because of his faith. When he was in his 80`s in 1859, He was arrested again. The judge triedin vain to make him trample on the crucifix and invited him in vain to prusuade his Christian followers to apostilate but he firmly replied "to redeem mankind, Christ voluntarily suffered death. . .I too, want to give love for love, spilling all may blood for him. While he was genuflecting to adore crucifix his head was cut off, it was the 30th of January 1860.
