St. Peter of Asche
Franciscan lay brother and a member of the Gorkum Martyrs. Also called Peter van Asche, he was a native of Asche, near Brussels, Belgium. Entering the Franciscans as a lay brother, he served as Guardian of the Franciscan house at Gorkum, Holland, and participated in the efforts of the Franciscans to convert the local Calvinists. He was seized by Protestant forces when Gorkum fell into Calvinist hands and, with four priests, was taken to Briel. There he endured severe tortures before being hanged at the ruined monastery of Ruggen.
