 103 Korean Martyr Saints


Saint Ho Kye-im Magdalene (1773~1839)

Saint Ho Kye-im Magdalene


    Ho Kye-im Magdalene lived in Pongchon with her family. She married Yi, who was a pagan. Magdalene could not convert her husband, but she raised her children Catholic. Among her daughters, Yi Magdalene was martyred on July 20, 1839, and Yi Barbara was martyred on September 3, 1839.
    Not much of record has been left about Ho Magdalene. All we know about her is that she was severely tortured but endured all the pains with courage and patience. Her courage was as great as that of her two daughters, Yi Magdalene and Yi Barbara. The mother of the two martyrs also became a martyr. This glorious family of martyrs is a blessing of God.
    Magdalene was beheaded outside the Small West Gate on September 26, 1839, with eight other Catholics. She was 67 years old when she was beheaded.
