Charles was one of the 22 Ugandan martyrs who converted to Christianity. Though he was baptized the night before being put to death, he became a moral leader. He was the chief of the royal pages and was considered the strongest athlete of the court. He was also known as ‘‘the most handsome man of the Kingdom of the Uganda.’’ He instructed his friends in the Catholic Faith and he personally baptized boy pages. He inspired and encouraged his companions to remain chaste and faithful. He protected his companions, ages 13-30, from the immoral acts and homosexual demands of the Bagandan ruler, Mwanga. Mwanga was a superstitious pagan king who originally was tolerant of Catholicism? However, his chief assistant, Kitikiro, slowly convinced him that Christians were a threat to his rule.

The premise was if these Christians would not bow to him, nor make sacrifice to their pagan god, nor pillage, massacre, nor make war, what would happen if his whole kingdom converted to Catholicism? When Charles was sentenced to death, he seemed very peaceful, one might even say, cheerful. He was to be executed by being burnt to death. While the pyre was being prepared, he asked to be untied so that he could arrange the sticks. He then lay down upon them. When the executioner said that Charles would be burned slowly to death, Charles replied by saying that he was very glad to be dying for the True Faith. He made no cry of pain but just twisted and moaned, ‘Katanda! (O my God).’’ He was burned to death by Mwanga’s or der on June 3, 1886. Pope Paul VI canonized Charles Lwanga and his companions on June 22, 1964.
