St. Alberic Crescitelli

Missionary and martyr. Born near Naples, Italy, Alberic joined the Milan Foreign Missionary Society and was sent to China in 1888. He worked in schools and missions along the Han River until the Boxer Rebellion brought chaos to China. A group of boxers captured Alberic and hacked him to pieces on July 21, 1900. He was beatified in 1951.
