March 23: Blessed Metod Dominik Trčka, Greek Catholic New Martyr Of Slovakia

 

Blessed Metod Dominik Trčka

1886-1959

Succumbed to pneumonia on this date back in 1959 in a Czechoslovakian prison. Illness was contracted when confined to solitary confinement as punishment for singing a Christmas carol. See also my favorite photo of him – Blessed Metod Dominik Trčka in a horse-drawn cart.

Blessed Metod, pray for us!
