How Blessed Franz succeeded in remaining faithful to the Truth


… He is Austrian, born in the country village of Sankt Radegund in 1907 to a teenage mother. He worked as a farmer in Bavaria and as a miner in Styria

… known for his cheerful bravado and his love for brawls and revelry

… even the parish priest told him to give up, and even the bishop of Linz

… why don’t you think of your children?

… your pride, which you are confusing with adhering to your religious faith?

… “Dark times will come when men are more intelligent; they will not fight the truth, they will ignore it”
