Save just one Jew and become a saint

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 8:12 am

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:

Begin quote

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.

End quote

The portrait of Sweden's Maria Elisabeth Hesselblad (1870-1957), who gave refuge to Jews in her homeland during World War Two, is hung on St. Peter's facade behind other Saint's statues during her beatification ceremony in Vatican April 9. The Pope John Paul II set five people from Asia, Europe and Latin America who devoted their lives to helping the poor and sick on the road to sainthood. VP/FMS

The following quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote

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.

End quote

St. Maria Elizabeth Hesselblad had nothing to do with the Hasselblad camera. Note the difference in spelling.

    • Sounds like the perfect plan to rid the world of “anti-Semitism” forever…

        No Semitism (i.e. rise of Jewish hegemonic tyranny), no anti-Semitism (i.e. reaction, resistance to that rise). Obvious…

    • How many Zionists?

      • Actually the Zionist are the problem both Jews and Christian but the issue remains, the Non Zionist Jews will still support the Zionist Jews so they basically go down with them.
        Imagine supporting a group of Zealots who want to destroy all the Goyim and yet they say nothing against them, or do anything to stop them.
        Seems like the Samson Syndrome.

  2. Oh great, now Catholics can pray to another lie besides Holocaust lies.

  3. What I notice is the Jews always get people that have done good to them and they make people know about that. Of course how true the story is is another story. I just saw in the paper today there was somebody that was a Muslim they said were hiding Jewish children or whatever so what the Jews are doing is they’re trying to create an alliance with all these people so that they are on their side.
    The ultimate relationship with all these non-believers is to come against us and that’s really what they’re trying to do have more people on their side to do that.
