Jerzy Popiełuszko (14 September 1947 – 19 October 1984) was a Roman Catholic priest from Poland, associated with the Solidarity union. He was murdered by three agents of the Polish communist internal intelligence agency who were shortly thereafter tried and convicted of the murder. He has been recognized as a martyr by the Catholic Church, and was beatified on 6 June 2010.
George Orwell, ‘Reflections on Gandhi’, (1949), in John Gross, ed, The Oxford Book of Essays, 504-505.
Whatever Gandhi may have thought, I think this shows how for all his virtues Orwell didn’t understand religion; Lewis’s The Four Loves addresses this kind of idea rather well, but he didn’t give the talks upon which that was based until almost a decade after this essay was written.
I have not yet read The Four Loves, but I feel that Meister Eckhart’s Sermon On Detachment addresses this issue exquisitely.
