He had a thing for teenage boys
One of his assistants protested and tried to save the young men: he was gotten rid of.
Charles took the assistant's place, knowing full well what had happened to his predecessor, but he too stood firm.
He told the young men about the truth of the Christian faith and that they should not give in.
The king went out of control with rage. He ordered the deaths of Charles and the others who resisted his advances and embraced Christ.
The memory of St. Charles Lwanga, who died in 1886, and the other martyrs of Uganda is celebrated on this day.
