Description

Oil Dedicated to Blessed Janos

Oil Dedicated to Blessed Janos was born on Dec. 27, 1931, in Szombathely, Hungary. One of the two martyrs was the Hungarian chaplain János Brennerwho died guarding the faith. János Brenner was ordained a priest by bishop Sándor Kovács on 19th June 1955 in the cathedral of Szombathely.

Blessed Janos Brenne attended schools run by Cistercians until the schools were nationalized by the post-World War II communist government.

He felt drawn to the Cistercians and entered as a novice in Zirc, Hungary in 1950 taking the name Brother Anasztáz Cistercian friar. Ordained a Priest in the diocese of Szombathely Hungary in 1955.

János’ Death

On the night of Dec. 14, 1957, János was falsely called to give last rites to a sick person in a neighboring town, amid the reprisals for the Hungarian Revolution of 1956.

He left his home, carrying his anointing oils and the Eucharist. But was ambushed in the woods outside Rabakethely and stabbed 32 times.

While the communists had hoped that Blessed Janos’s death would intimidate the faithful in the area, they could not stop devotion to János’ memory. The dirty and bloodied surplice Brenner wore when he was killed has been preserved as a relic.
