WHO WAS WALTER CISZEK ?
 Father Ciszek was a Polish-American Jesuit priest who conducted clandestine missionary work in the Soviet Union between 1939 and 1963.  When captured by the Russians, he spent a total of 23 years in Soviet Gulag It is said he was gone so long, thought dead,  that when he got off the plane, they did not know if it would be Father or some Soviet imposter ... .. Take the time to read about this remarkable man. You will never regret it ...

 FINDING THE WILL OF GOD :
     Across that threshold I had been afraid to cross, things suddenly seemed so very simple. There was but a single vision, God, who was all in all; there was but one will that directed all things, God's will. I had only to see it, to discern it in every circumstance in which I found myself, and let myself be ruled by it.
(rosary inspired by his words above)

 ... AND HAD FAILED
  I had asked for God’s help but had really believed in my ability to avoid evil and to meet every challenge. . . . I had been thanking God all the while that I was not like the rest of men. . . . I had relied almost completely on myself in this most critical test—and I had failed.

IMPRISONED
 FIRST OPPORTUNITY TO CELEBRATE MASS
  But for the first time in five years he met another priest and was able to say Mass. Polish prisoners had made wine out of stolen raisins, the paten was a cover for a gold watch, the chalice was a shot glass. "But my joy at being able to celebrate Mass again cannot be described. . . . I heard confessions regularly and from time to time was even able to distribute Communion secretly after I'd said Mass. The experience gave me new strength. I could function as a priest again, and I thanked God daily for the opportunity to work among this hidden flock, consoling and comforting men who had thought themselves beyond His grace."
