Transcript of Blessed Fr. Jerzy Popiełuszko

Path to Sainthood Fr. Jerzy Popieluszko “In order to defeat evil with good, in order to preserve the dignity of man, one must not use violence. It is the person who has failed to win on the strength of his heart and his reason, who tries to win by force...Let us pray that we be free from fear and intimidation, but above all from the lusts for revenge and violence.” Do you think you could sacrifice your life for you faith? Yes, although it would be extremely difficult to give up your life, with God's help, anything is possible. It would definitely require a lot of courage and trust in God. Do teens have anything in common with Fr. Jerzy? Yes, sometimes teenagers don't always agree with rules or beliefs forced on them by higher authority, just like Fr. Jerzy. Also, Fr. Jerzy showed teenagers that even though they are young, they can still make a difference. They must have the courage to stand up for what they believe. How are teenagers inspired by Fr. Jerzy's story? Fr. Jerzy's story inspires teens to take risks and stand up to "the man".
Teens can be inspired to fight for what is right, even if it not popular.
