We live in a time that calls for moral courage, and few exemplify such courage quite like Blessed Clemens August Graf von Galen and FranzJägerstätter. One was a bishop who defied the evil of the Nazi ideology. The other was executed for refusing to serve in Hitler’s war machine. Join us to learn more about what these holy people can teach us about facing the false ideologies of our own times and the need for leaders to live out the virtue of moral courage. This event includes a talk by von Galen’s English language biographer, Father Daniel Ulrecht, a priest of the Toronto Oratory.
