Hostia pro fratribus, a life offered for his brethren

 Mgr. B. Slokans (1893 – 1981) began his episcopal ministry in the midst of persecutions against faith in God. The venerable bishop suffered much out of love for Christ and his Church, first of all in the soviet camps then during the deportation in Siberia. After he was freed, he began his ministry in Latvia before continuing for 35 years in Belgium. By offering his life for his brethren, Mgr. Sloskans was a living image of the good Shepherd, meek and humble of heart. For each one of us, he can be a friend, a brother, a father.
