The Blessed Ulma Family
Tomorrow, September 10th, in the village of Markowa, Poland, history will be made in the Catholic Church.
For the first time ever, an entirely family will be beatified together, including their unbaptized baby. We are within living memory of parish priests refusing to bury unbaptized infants in the Catholic cemetery, and now the Church is beatifying an unbaptized child.
The Ulma family—Wiktoria, Józef, and their seven children—died as martyrs trying to protect Jewish families from the Nazis.
Their feast day will be July 7, the anniversary of Wiktoria and Józef’s wedding.
Blessed Wiktoria, Blessed Józef, Blessed Stasia, Blessed Basia, Blessed Władzio, Blessed Franuś, Blessed Antoś, Blessed Marysia, and Blessed Baby Ulma
-Pray for us.
