Narrated by Martin Sheen and produced by Jerzy Films/DVA/LLC – Messenger of Truth tells the remarkable true story of Catholic priest and human rights activist Father Jerzy Popieluszko whose faith, conviction and courage inspired the people of Poland to stand against the oppressive Communist rule of the 1980s. In his powerful sermons, Father Jerzy spoke about human rights, railed against injustice and tyranny, and advocated for truth and freedom.
Popieluszko was 35 years old when he was killed. Three police officers convicted of his murder were later sentenced to between 14 and 25 years in prison. The church of St Stanislas in Warsaw, where he used to preach against the Communist authorities, has become a place of pilgrimage. An estimated 12 million people have visited it.
