What's on FORMED? An Ordinary Martyr short film


“A shepherd cannot run at the first sign of danger.” -Blessed Stanley Francis Rother

An Ordinary Martyr, the Life and Death of Blessed Stanley Rother, tells the story of a young man born into a devoted German Catholic family in the small farming town of Okarche, Oklahoma. His calling to the priesthood and missionary service led him to Guatemala where he would give his life for his people. This short film captures the heart, devotion and resolution of Blessed Stanley Rother and the ultimate sacrifice he made for his faith.
