Martyrs of September - September 2

On September 2 and 3rd 1792, during the French Revolution, a group of 190 martyrs were massacred. The most well known were John Mary du Lau, the archbishop of Arles, Francis de la Rochefoucauld, the bishop of Beauvais, Benedictine Augustine Chevreux, and the last superior general of the Maurists, Charles de la Calmette. One hundred twenty were martyred at the Carmelite Church on the rue de Rennes in Paris. They were all beatified in 1926.
