Ven. Pope Pius XII

Pope Pius XII was pope during the Second World War, when the Nazi powers were brutally persecuting Christian and Jewish people throughout Europe. Many people tried to tell the Holy Father how to handle the terrible situation, but Pius XII relied primarily on prayer to discern the best way to help those in need. He was heroic in his courage and charity, directing the Church to provide refuge, food, and money to the suffering in various countries. His efforts, although quiet, saved the lives of thousands of people. He even hid Jews at Castel Gandolfo.
