Sara Salkahazi

It sounds like a heroine story straight from a fictional film, but this Hungarian nun, recently beatified by the Catholic church, has been said to have saved over 100 Jews during World War II. Sara hid them in the building where she lived with other Sisters of Social Service, and was shot by the Arrow Cross for her bravery. Together, the Sisters saved over 1,000 Jews from being massacred.

Despite the deathly dangers, Sara risked all in sisterly love.

Think in terms of multiplication: She saved 100 lives. How many descendants of those people are in existence today because of what Sara did?

None of us will probably do anything quite as dramatic, but who knows how our good deeds could impact countless numbers of people?
