: Narrated by Martin Sheen Messenger of the Truth tells the remarkable true story of Catholic priest and human rights activist Father Jerzy Popieluszko whose faith, conviction and courage inspired the people of Poland to stand against the oppressive Communist rule of the 1980s. In his powerful sermons, Father Jerzy spoke about human rights, railed against injustice and tyranny, and advocated for truth and freedom. In 1984 at 35, he was kidnapped and killed by the Polish security police for his beliefs. He is celebrated internationally, and an estimated 12 million people have visited the church of St. Stanislas in Warsaw where he used to preach against the Communist authorities. The process of beatification has begun for Father Jerzy Popieluszko, sending this martyr on his path to sainthood.
