Martydom of Dirk Willems

Dirk Willems was running away from a papist persecutor over the ice of a pond. Suddenly, he heard a voice crying for help. Seeing the persecutor braking through the ice, Dirk turned back, and saved him. The persecutor wanted to let him go, but the burgomaster did not allow to do so. Dirk was thrown into a secure prison, and burned. Asperen, Holland, AD 1569.
