July 28 - Saint Botvid

He was a Swedish saint of the 11th century. He was pagan, but when he went to England, he converted to Christianity. Even though he was not a priest, he had a great desire to evangelize and became a lay missionary. He then returned to Sweden and from there went to Finland. He had a slave to whom he catechized and freed. But his man betrayed him and killed him while he slept.
