Blessed Solomon, martyr
Nicolas Leclerc was born in Boulogne sur Mer, France, on 15 November 1745. As a teacher, Director, competent administrator and finally secretary to the Superior General, he showed great love for souls and complete dedication to the work entrusted to him.
The sanctity of his life was confirmed during the French Revolution when he sided with the clergy in refusing to swear allegiance to the Constitution. He was martyred on 2 September 1792 and beatified by Pius XI on 17 October 1926 with his 188 fellow martyrs. His feast is celebrated on 2 September.
