The “Spekpater”, Fr. Werenfried van Straaten
Particularly moving is the fact that Father van Straaten first success was in favour of refugees of the country then most hated in Europe. In addition, one could say hated from no one more than from the Dutch (of whom Van Straaten was one), for reasons I do not want to describe here but many of you will know.
Rest in Peace, Spekpater!
