The Boxer rebellion was an anti-imperialist, anti-foreign, and anti-christian uprising in China, between 1899 and 1901 that sought to expel all western influence from the country including Catholicism. There is a bit of history we could go into there but that isn't necessary.
One parish priest told the following story of what happened when his church was attacked. The priest was locked in the rectory and the Church was ransacked. At one point they threw the tabernacle spilling the consecrated hosts (the literal body Christ) onto the ground. The priest couldn't do anything but pray while Jesus's body was on the ground.
Later that night he was still praying when he heard a noise. He then saw a little girl come over to the hosts. She had hidden while the communists ransacked the church and she had seen the whole thing happen. She knelt down before the hosts and spent some time in silent adoration. And then she bowed over, and took one of the hosts on her tongue and consumed it. (this was back when everyone always received on the tongue.) There were around 30 hosts I believe, and every night she would come back and consume one more (She had been taught to only receive the Eucharist once a day). 30 or so consecutive nights of doing this passed, and at last there was only one host left. The priest was praying hard as the girl came in. After this all of the hosts would be gone, and she could stop sneaking in and risking her life. The girl bowed down and took the body of Christ on her tongue for the last time. Then she made the sign of the cross, and turned to leave. She knocked something over or made some sort of noise. The Chinese soldiers ran in and saw what she had been doing.
And using the ends of their rifles they beat her to death.
This is how real the faith was to the Chinese Christians. So strong that an 8 year old girl died so that Jesus wouldn't be on the ground.
