Blessed Stanley Rother, Martyr

Glenmary has a connection to the first first US-born martyr, servant of God, Bl. Stanley Rother.  Fr. Stanley will be beatified in Oklahoma City on September 23, 2017.  You can read the article about the connection that appeared in our Glenmary Challenge Magazine online.

“The shepherd cannot run at the first sign of danger. Pray for us that we may be a sign of the love of Christ for our people, that our presence among them will fortify them to endure these sufferings in preparation for the coming of the Kingdom.” Bl. Stanley Rother, priest and martyr
