(b. Dec. 13, 1907; d. Aug. 21, 1964) Picture of Blessed Ladislaus
Blessed Ladislaus received his early education from the Felician Sisters. Ordained on June 19, 1932. He saved Greek Catholic families who were being persecuted and exiled by the Communists. To hinder his work he was ordered to stop teaching the catechism and to live outside the area of his parish. In 1963 he started the Conciliar Works of Charity, a letter writing campaign to parishioners to exhort them to return to the Church. Father Ladislaus was arrested and imprisoned in the Rzeszow Castle, two months after major surgery to remove Ladislaus’ thyroid gland. A show trial was conducted and Ladislaus was given a 30 month sentence for the crime of “forcing” religion on his parishioners. This followed by a series of published slanders and lies to discredit Ladislaus while he was being abused and starved in prison. Ladislaus’ health was broken; He was suffering from cancer of the esophagus. Surgery was postponed, and Ladislaus was permitted to suffer and deteriorate.
