Tell others about Jesus like Francis of Assisi did:

 We who are Christians are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). __________

The hidden network by the clergy of Assisi that saved persecuted Jews during WWII

During the second World War, racist laws in Italy forced thousands of Jews to flee their cities in search of safe haven.  A few hundred of these refugees, facing dangerous obstacles along the way, reached Assisi, the city of St. Francis.  Even with the city under German occupation, all of those who came to Assisi were saved.

Photo: from the Film, "Assisi In Silence".

Under secret orders by pope Pius XII to do all that was humanly possible to save the Jews, the Bishop of Assisi, Mon. Giuseppe Placido Nicolini, began the operation that would open up monasteries and convents to hide the persecuted.  Priests, nuns, the towns mayor, and many of Assisi's citizens all worked together in this hidden network.

With interviews of some of those directly involved, historical footage of the era, and Pope John Paul II's message from Assisi to walk the paths of peace, this inspirational story is told.
