A Question of Sinfulness I


A Question of Sinfulness

I found this excerpt at one of the sites noted below:

In Belgium, Dom Bruno (Henri Reynders), who died in 1981, was a Benedictine monk who helped to protect at least 300 Jewish children from the Holocaust by providing them with false identification papers.

I was disoriented, but gratified by this. I was told that it would be a sin to lie about the something even in order to accomplish a very good thing, such as saving several hundred people. Thus, I doubt that this man will ever be beatified, but I do rejoice, however wrongfully, that he saved the children he did.
