Today I am commenting on a news article about a Swedish nun who sheltered Jews during the Holocaust: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/maria-elisabeth-hesselblad-saint_us_5755a93fe4b0eb20fa0e86ba
The following quote is from the news article:
Pope Francis canonized Maria Elisabeth Hesselblad on Sunday during a Mass at the Vatican’s St. Peter’s Square. The last saint of Swedish origin was Saint Bridget, who was canonized about 625 years ago.
The following quote is also from the news article:
Hesselblad isn’t the only Catholic saint who is honored for their actions during World War II. Maximilian Kolbe, a Franciscan friar, perished in the Auschwitz concentration camp after he was caught sheltering Jewish refugees in his monastery. In 1998, Saint John Paul II canonized Edith Stein, a Catholic convert with Jewish heritage who also lost her life at Auschwitz.
St. Maria Elizabeth Hesselblad had nothing to do with the Hasselblad camera. Note the difference in spelling.
