details of death

During World War I chaplain of the Russian army (for a time).

After Abp Edward Ropp was arrested in 1919 by the Russian Bolsheviks, organized a demonstration in Saint Petersburg in protest and defense of his bishop.

As a result, facing imminent arrest, prob. went into hiding for half a year in Sankt Petersburg under a guise of Russian Bolshevik soldier.

Later arrested several more times, e.g. in c. 1920, when prob. was in prison for about a year.

After release, organized protests against the arrest of the new bishop, Abp John Cieplak.

Together with him and 13 other priests, tried on 21‑25.03.1923 in Moscow at the show trial of the Catholic clergy.

The prosecutor demanded the death penalty for him: „[he is] a determined enemy of the Soviet government, because he broke the law and announced that he would continue to break it, the severe punishment that will fall on him will stop others from following his example”.

In response, stated: „I have not committed any counter–revolutionary act and I have nothing to reproach myself for which deserves the death penalty under any article of the criminal law.

I have never conspired against the government and I have always tried to follow the rules of the authorities.

It was my greatest effort […] We exercise our influence not by violence, but by teaching and strengthening souls by the grace of God.

First of all, we teach love for God and neighbor.

This is our Gospel”.

Sentenced to 10 years in prison with „strict isolation”.

After about half a year in the Sokolnyky prison in Moscow, transferred to the prison in the Lefortovo district, the so‑called „Lefortovian insulator”.

In prison, broke down and mentally wasted away: „It was expressed in apathy and constant paranoid hope that he would be released every time he turned the key. Prison made him seriously ill. However, the persuasion of his fellows and the change of prison calmed his nerves somewhat”.

On 01.02.1925 released and exchanged for Russian spies in Poland (among Russians sent to Russia was — according to some historians — Boleslav Bierut, future leader of Commie–Nazi regime in Poland).

Settled in Warsaw, but did not recover and died after a year.

Trial of 21—25.03.1923: Show trial against abp John Cieplakow, 14 Catholic priest and one lay Catholic held on 21‑25.03.1923 in Moscow accused of „participation in a counter–revolutionary organization aiming at counter–acting the decree on the separation of the church from the state”, of „incitement to rebellion by superstition”. The Russian prosecutor thundered: „Any movement directed against the Soviet government is counter–revolutionary and must be punished as such. For belonging to an organization whose essence I have explained, all defendants deserve the highest penalty”. And lo–and–behold abp Cieplak and Fr Budkiewicz were sentence to death, the others got from 6 months to 10 years of prison or slave labour. Fr Budkiewicz was murdered in prison. Abp Cieplak’s sentence was subsequently reduced to 10 months of slave labour and he was exchanged for Russian spies in Poland among whom was Bolesław Bierut, future first Russian governor in Commie‑Nazi Poland, conquered in 1945 by Russia. Most of the other accused were exchanged for Russian spies as well and went to Poland. At least five however did not return from prisons, concentration camps and exile, among them Fr Leonidas Fiodorov, first Greek–Catholic exarch in Russia, who in 2001 was beatified by pope St John Paul II.
