Photo of the Day: Church of Korean Martyrs, Saddle Brook, NJ

Passing through Saddle Brook, NJ a few weekends ago, I was struck by the unusual name on one of the houses of worship in town—the Roman Catholic Church of Korean Martyrs—then on the religious art outside. Intrigued, I circled back on my way back from a local park and took this photo.

For background on the people for whom the church is named, including the 124 who will be canonized later this year who were killed between 1791 and 1888, see this link.
