EVERARD HANSE (Blessed) Martyr (July 31) (16th century) A Protestant minister who, becoming a convert, resigned his rich preferments and received the priesthood at Rheims. His Apostolate afterwards in England was short; and he was put to death at Tyburn, A.D. 1582. Bystanders report that when the executioner had cut him down alive from the gallows and, according to the sentence, was tearing out his heart, he was heard to exclaim, “O Happy Day.”
