Poland: 5,000 clerics remember priests slain in World War II

Catholic World News - May 05, 2010

Five thousand priests and seminarians, led by Cardinal Claudio Hummes and Archbishop Stanislaw Dziwisz of Krakow, gathered at the Shrine of Jasna Góra in Czestochowa on April 30 and May 1 and recalled the heroic example of the 3,000 Polish priests who were slain during World War II. A book containing the names of the priests was presented to Our Lady of Czestochowa.

Following a procession with the relics of St. John Vianney, the prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy urged the nation’s priests to recommit themselves to evangelization. “You must go to families, to work places, to schools, to university environments, you must seek out those who have no faith,” said Cardinal Hummes at the concluding Mass.
