St. JOHN OF BRITTO

Christian Saint

Also known as João de Brito, Arul Anandar

Jesuit Missionary and Martyr who went off to India to convert the Hindus

Hmmm. Baptism goes down well. Mostly thanks to the sacred Ganges River.

Now for this prince — I’ll just have a word about monogamy and get him to discard all those superfluous wives...

What’s gone wrong? I can’t understand why I am in prison under a death sentence...
