In this troubled world where it seems that there are very few heroes left, except the imaginary ones, it is nice to come across a real, beautifully valiant spirit.
I was reading The Knights of Columbus magazine Columbia, and came across an article on the life of Blessed Laszlo. So I looked him up and discovered a hero. A man who, from an early age, felt drawn to helping the poor, who became a doctor and stayed true to his dream and assisted the poor even after inheriting a title, a castle, and all the good fortune of such an honor. He married, had a large family, and raised his children in the faith, teaching them the value of concrete acts of charity. This was a man who could have gloried in his good luck, but rather gloried in God. He is remembered as “the doctor of the poor.” Not a bad way to be remembered. I doubt God forgot his kindness.
