Assembly: Blessed Josef Mayr-Nusser – Martyr for Conscience

Photo02On Saturday 18 March Pope Francis will beatify the Italian layman Josef Mayr-Nusser: A Martyr for Conscience

Sentenced to death because of his faith when his conscience would not allow him to make an oath of loyalty to Hitler, Josef Mayr-Nusser died on 24 February 1945 in a cattle wagon on the way to Dachau concentration camp where he was to be shot.

We have produced an assembly resource to mark the occasion of the beatification of Bl. Josef, celebrating his life and the lessons we can learn from his courageous witness.
