German priest, martyred by Nazis, is beatified

Catholic World News - June 13, 2011

Father Alois Andritzki, a German priest who died at Dachau, was beatified on June 13.

Cardinal Angelo Amato, the prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, presided at the Monday beatification ceremony in Dresden, Germany.

At his midday audience on Sunday, June 12, Pope Benedict XVI had called attention to the forthcoming beatification, saying that Blessed Alois Andritzki was a “heroic witness of the faith who joins the ranks of those who gave their lives in Christ's name in the concentration camps.” The Pope went on to invoke the intercession of those martyrs for the cause of world peace.
