March 25

Winchester, England, 1574 – 1593

Beatified in 1929 by Pope Pius XI.

Roman Martyrology: Ay Winchester always in England, Blessed James Bird, martyr: under the Queen at nineteen, recently became a Catholic, refused to participate in a liturgy that felt alien and thus deserved to reach the celebration of the liturgy of heaven.
