A German Saint in the Face of Totalitarian Evil: Paul Cardinal Mayer, O.S.B.

Benedictine monk and future cardinal, Padre Paul Mayer of Germany, born in 1911, found himself in Rome during the Nazi occupation. Sometimes people forget that Nazism was also anti-Catholic. Fr. Joseph Ratzinger wrote in 1966: "Nazi anti-Semitism, in any case, attacked Christianity as part of the Near-Eastern and Jewish defilement of the Aryan race."
