Polish "Martyrs of Our Time" Campaign Includes George Shahata and Fr. Santoro

This campaign is putting posters up on public transportation in Poland. I give thanks for these courageous Polish hearts. At times like this it is not hard to see where John Paul II came from.

Freedom For Egyptians has a moving post for the Coptic child George Shahata (link)

Post from this blog on Fr. Santoro:

Pope: May Fr Santoro “become the seed of hope for building authentic brotherhood”

“Meryem anà”: Fr Andrea Santoro’s prayer to Mary

May these lessons remain in our heart.

Fulton Sheen Said:

"Freedom is not just something with which we are born; it is something we achieve. America did not receive a perpetual endowment of freedom; it has had to struggle and fight to preserve it. Freedom is not an heirloom or an antique; it is a life that must fight against the corrosive powers of death and nourish itself on the daily bread of goodness and virtue."

"I am not fighting to preserve the kind of world we had just before this war , If I were I'd be fighting for a world that produced tyrants and dictators. The new world must be a better world than that or it is not worth fighting for."

He was speaking of world war II, but it applies to the struggle against fundamentalism. May the Polish people be blessed for their courage in bringing the courage of these martyrs to light.
