Summary / Abstract:

ENCanon Petras Dvaranauskas was one of the eminent priests and the defender of the rights of Lithuanian Catholics in Seinai region. He worked in a printing house and was a very active member of the community. Priest Petras Dvaranauskas was an earnest servant of church, as well as a conscious Lithuanian fighting for his fellow believers and defending them from harm experienced on their own land. Despite his views, Petras Dvaranauskas never led activities directed against the Poles, their nation or culture. He respected all the believers. He wanted people of various nationalities to have the possibility to listen to the word of God and pray in church, as well as at home, in their native language. Canon Petras Dvaranauskas was a good priest and generous protector who cared more about the welfare of other people than about his own interests. The priest could serve as an example to the current clergy while his ideas should be followed by others. He understood that the believers should be brothers and sisters to one another, regardless their nationality and social status. [From the publication]
