I congratulate the Diocese of Oklahoma in recognizing their great treasure…….the martyrs inspire us in the faith. I visited the sacristy where Blessed Stanley Rother was shot. The woman guide showed me his blood that got splashed on the wall. The guide explained how his blood looked like the face of Jesus….I wasn’t sure of that but her faith and her love for Jesus made me cry and even now as I type this my eyes begin to water. Please keep on promoting Blessed Stanley, he is your and our great treasure.
