FOUR SVD MARTYRS BEATIFIED IN JUNE 2001
On June 13, 1999 four of our Divine Word Missionaries were declared blessed (the last official step before sainthood is declared). The four are among 108 Polish martyrs of the Second World War who were beatified. The ceremony, presided over by Pope John Paul II, took place in Warsaw, Poland, and brought the total number of Divine Word Missionaries who have been declared Blessed to six - the first two were: Blessed Arnold Janssen, founder of the Society of the Divine Word; and Blessed Joseph Freinademetz, the first Divine Word Missionary to China.
The four who were beatified in June were all Poles murdered by the Nazis during the Second World War, and therefore are also honored as martyrs who died because of the faith they professed. To learn more about their holy lives click on their individual pictures.
