CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Marcello Semeraro, prefect of the Dicastery for the Causes of Saints, traveled to Markowa, Poland, to celebrate a Mass commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Ulma family’s martyrdom.

Józef and Wiktoria Ulma, along with their seven children, were slain by Nazis for sheltering Jews. They were beatified last September.

Polish President Andrzej Duda, who attended the Mass, said that “in silence, they offered a testimony of humanity.” He added, “How many of us would dare to risk our own lives and those of our family members to save another human being?”
