Description

Whoever said that Christians had to be meek and mild hadn't met FElix Kir – parish priest, French resistance hero and inventor of the Kir Royale. And they probably weren't thinking of Archbishop Damaskinos who, when threatened with the firing squad by the Nazis, replied, 'Please respect our traditions – in Greece we hang our archbishops.' Whether pushing down country roads atop a tank or taking a bullet for an innocent schoolgirl, these fifteen extraordinary people were willing to give their lives to fight for the world they believed in. Wherever fascism has taken root, it has met with resistance. From wartime Athens to sixties Alabama, Vichy France to military dictatorship in Brazil, these are the priests who dared to speak out (and act out) against those who would persuade us that hate is stronger than love.
