These three Bulgarian Assumptionists, men of their time, educators and peacemakers for the unity of the churches and the different rites of the Catholic church were executed during the night of November 11/12, 1952 in the prison of Sofia (Bulgaria) because of hatred of their faith and of their popularity.
They were declared martyrs of the faith on April 23, 2002 and beatified by Pope John Paul II on May 26, 2002 in Plovdiv (Bulgaria).
