Tell others about Jesus:

Though not all Christians are called to full-time ministry,  we 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 true story of an Irish Priest who hid refugees and Allied POWs from the Nazis

The true story of Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty (Gregory Peck), a courageous Irish priest working in the Vatican during the German Occupation.  O'Flaherty devotes all his time and energy to hiding refugees and Allied POWs from the Nazis, building a network of hundreds of people to help him with his efforts.

Colonel Kappler (Christopher Plummer), the local Gestapo chief, learns of O'Flahert's activities.  The priest has diplomatic immunity because of his Vatican post, but Kappler orders that he be captured or killed if seen outside the Vatican walls.

...saving thousands of innocent people from death.

Pope Pius XII remains aloof, insisting on the church's neutrality.

Working closely with a brave widow of an aristocrat, O'Flaherty uses disguises to slip in and out of the Vatican, continuing his dangerous mission until Rome is liberated, and saving thousands of innocent people from death.  ______________________________
