Fr. Anthony Walsh, OP, one of our Australia co-directors who will be presenting at World Youth Day in Sydney, sent me
this moving You tube video of Irena Sendler. Sendler was a Catholic nurse who saved 2,500 Jewish children's lives in Nazi-occupied Warsaw by smuggling them out to stay with Polish Catholic families.

Irena was imprisoned and tortured but never gave away any names. The names of the rescued children were buried in a jar in
her garden.

Irena died May 12. She had been recognized by the State of Israel as "Righteous Among the Nations"



Well done, good and faithful servant.
