Servant of God Kamilla Nikolaevna Krušel’Nišckaja

Kamilla Nikolaevna Krušel'NišckajaProfile

Lay woman of the apostolic exarchate of the Russian Byzantine Catholic Church. She studied at the University of Moscow where she became involved with the Dominican tertiaries. She was arrested in 1933 as part of the Communist persecutions of the faith, and sentenced to 10 years in the work camps. She continued to be firm in her faith, to support other imprisonedCatholics, and assist any imprisoned priests. In the Solovki camp she met and married another prisoner, whom she had hoped to convert, but he was an informant and reported her continuing religious activity to the authorities. This led to her confinement in an even more brutal camp, and then to her execution. Her Cause for Canonization as a martyr has opened.
