“The role of the priest is to proclaim the truth and suffer for the truth, and if necessary, even die for the truth.” – Polish priest-martyr Jerzy Popieluszko
Jim Kushiner from Touchstone Magazine has written a powerful essay interacting with a new documentary on the life and death of Jerzy Popieluszko, a Polish priest in the 1980’s. Kushiner examines the work of Popieluszko as an example of how Christians should stand firm, not in hatred but in love. There is much wisdom (& challenge!) for us here concerning living in challenging times.
