In 1944, Joseph Mayr-Nusser, Italian layman, a Catholic husband and father, refused to take the oath of allegiance to Hitler after being drafted into the German army. He died on the way to Dachau concentration camp, to which he had been sentenced. At the age of 22 he joined the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. He was beatified on March 18, 2017. Pope Francis called Blessed Joseph a model for all laymen and fathers “on account of his great moral and spiritual stature.”
