Father Stanley Rother found his life’s calling at a mission in Guatemala. He became very close to the people of the mountain village, but his compassion made him a target. In July 1981, he was brutally murdered in the rectory of the church. In September Father Rother was beatified in Oklahoma City by a Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church and is on a path to being recognized as a saint.
