Image of St. Paul Loc Van Le Father Paul Loc Van Le, of An Nhon, Vietnam, a former soldier and newly ordained alumnus of a seminary in Penang, Malaysia, was arrested by pagan officials of Vietnam's imperial regime on December 13, 1858. A French attack upon the country at this time was used by the pagan authorities as a pretext to intensify the persecution against Catholics. Consequently, Father Loc Van Le was sentenced to death and beheaded. Following his death, the Catholic faithful retrieved his body, and reverently clothed and buried it.
