The Mother of a Saint

Sunday, June 13, 2010
Blessed Jerzy Popiełuszko was beatified in Warsaw last Sunday. An account of his great witness to the Gospel can be found here. One of the most striking images of last week's celebration was his 100-year-old mother, Marianna, praying at his tomb. Her witness reminds us that the saints are not some abstract collection of super-men and wonder-women but real people like us.
