Hungarian Martyr Brenner János Beatified

 60 years after being brutally murdered, the 26-year old priest Brenner János was beatified on May 1st this year in Székesfehérvár. (The village where he was stabbed to death would not have been able to accommodate the crowds.)  Twenty thousand people attended the outdoor ceremony presided over by Cardinal Angelo Amato, Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. János’ younger brother, József, the only surviving member of the family, spoke at the beatification.
