Father Rupert Mayer – The American Catholic

A German Army chaplain during World War I, Father Mayer earned plaudits from the troops for his courage under fire.  Cautioned for the risks he was taking he replied simply, My life is in God’s hands.  He displayed the same courage in speaking out against the Nazis after they came to power in his beloved Germany.  He was beatified by John Paul II on May 3, 1987..  May his courage serve as our example.  His feast day is November 3.
