Blessed Franz Jagerstatter-SFO Martyr

Please take time to recall a humble human being who gave up his life in order to witness to the Kingdom of God. In the midst of the NAZI reign of horror, Franz Jagerstatter steadfastly avoided cooperation with evil; even to the point of death.

On October 26, 2007, Franz Jagerstatter, a member of the SFO, will be beatified in Linz, Austria. I invite you to read a brief yet poignant reflection [pdf or Word] on his life and death published by the National SFO - Peace and Justice Commission.
