One of the truly great modern heroes of Poland of the Communist era, a prophet, a man who gave up his life for his brothers, and whose execution brought about the downfall of Communism in Poland. Fr. Jerzy was born on the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross. He would prove to be a super strong catalyst in bringing about the Triumph of the Cross in Poland, six years after his Martyrdom. See special scenes from his ministry and his funeral; meet his parents and the Lady he loved in Czestochowa. At his last Mass he said, "We must fight evil by doing good."
