A hero of our time: Blessed Jerzy Popiełuszko, a Polish priest martyred in 1984. His liturgical memorial is today. Father Jerzy stood for the Faith and welfare of his people in the face of the Communist tyranny that wracked his country.
Blessed Jerzy Popiełuszko is recognized by the faithful and by the Church spoke the truth and exposed the falsehoods (lies and deceit) of the authorities –for this he was killed. His life’s story and image is ingrained in my heart and mind. Imagine what his mother endured when she heard her son was murdered.
Many will agree that Blessed Jerzy Popiełuszko is a prophet for our times.
