Malate Martyrs

Fr. Arthur Price

We arrive in Manila on a beautiful tropical evening just before sunsets, four newly ordained priests, Father James McDevitt, Dermot Feeny, Martin Strong and Arthur Price. We made our way to Malate church, which we found in a festive mood as that annual novena in honor of Our Lady of Remedies was then in Progress. It was on November 15, 1936. A wonderful atmosphere of relaxed enjoyment. Religion was really seemed to be the center of the lives of these people in more ways than one.
