On September 23, 2017, Father Stanley Rother will be the first American-born martyr to be beatified. Prepare for this momentous occasion by learning more about this extraordinary Christian and priest. After a family-filled childhood spent on an Oklahoma farm, Father Stanley felt the call to priesthood and eventually to missionary work in Guatemala. Father Stanley was a shepherd to the Mayan people he lived among — establishing a school, farmer’s co-op, clinic, and radio station — remaining with them even during the violent Guatemalan civil war until he made the ultimate sacrifice and gave his life for the faith.
