His mission in the province of Hunan lasted four years. But a local potentate had him arrested. From prison to prison, from court to court, he was held captive for a year but remained steadfast in his faith. Sentenced to death by strangulation, he was executed on September 11, 1840. Each year, in August and September, pilgrims from all over France come to Montgesty to honor his memory.
