Jesuit priest known as the Apostle of Munich.He was a survivor of two world wars. In the first conflict he lost a leg. When Hitler rose to power, our Saint detected the whiff of Evil and spoke out against it. Thus he was sent to a concentration camp.
Suffering from bad health, he was later interred in a deserted monastery — mostly to prevent his becoming a martyr should he die.
Eventually he was liberated by American troops and returned to Munich to help in any way he could. Which sadly wasn't much as he died that same year.
