JERZY POPIELUSZKO - MESSENGER OF THE TRUTH
Narrated by actor Martin Sheen, this powerful documentary tells the remarkable true story of Polish martyr and 20th century hero, Bl. Jerzy Popieluszko. Fr. Jerzy, the chaplain of the Solidarity movement in Poland, was murdered in 1984 at the age of 37 by the Communists for speaking the truth about human dignity and rights in a country full of propaganda, oppression and social injustice. Fr. Jerzy's strong faith, love and courage mobilized a nation to stand united against the Communist regime in Poland. He was beatified in 2010 and each year hundreds of thousands visit his grave in Warsaw. One disc. 85 minutes.
