Was St. Stanislaus comfortable?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Apr 11, 2013

On this feast of St. Stanislaus I can’t help wondering whether the great Polish bishop and martyr was “comfortable” confronting King Boleslaus. The foes of St. Stanislaus said that the bishop was playing politics when he excommunicated the king. That argument has a very contemporary flavor, doesn’t it?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
