Czar Nicholas I of Russia nearly destroyed the Ruthenians and other Eastern Catholic Christians who refused to abandon their fidelity to the Pope in one of the most effective and brutal persecutions the Catholic Church has known. Learn about the brave Martyrs and Confessors of the East who endured everything from torture, work camps, and even having their children sold into slavery for remaining in the unity of the Catholic Church. We follow with particular attention the Holy Nuns of Minsk who did not have a single Nun fall into schism despite years of torture and many martyrdoms.
