Quiet brother met with a violent death

Born Nicholas Leclercq at Boulogne in France in 1745, De La Salle Brother Solomon was destined to die a martyr during the French Revolution in 1792.

With his wine merchant father, he came from a family of the professional class. His parents were good and religious people, with his mother in particular holding a great love for the Church and deep devotion to Our Lady.
