Romzsa Tódor

Tódor Rozsma (In Ukranian: Ромжа Теодор Юрій) (April 14. 1911 Nagybocskó- Noverber 1. Munkács 1947) was a beatified martyr, Greek Catholic bishop from Munkács.

He was born in 1911 on the fourteenth of April in the Sub-Carpathian village of Nagybocskó (The County of Máramaros), on the side left to the Tisza river that was controlled by Ramania in 1919 but the Rozsma family has already moved onto the right side of the river and were living there since 1915. His father was an officcal of the railroad his grandfather, great-grandfather and more ancestors were Greek Chatolic priests. After the four years of primary school he studied in the Huszti Public High School where he finished with perfect grades in 1930. After that with the help of Péter Gébé Greek Catholic bishop he whent to Rome to learn theology. In the roman archives of the Russzikum is Tódor Rozsma's Bapthism Certificate where he is called Tivadar Görgy and he called himszelf Tódor in Hungarian, he signatured his letters as Tódor. Between 1930 and 1934 he was the student of the roman Collegium Germanium et Hungaronum then untill 1937 he is the student of the Collegium Russicum. He whent to the Geogorina University and had Summa Cum laude grade when he [Licenziázott] (he didn't return to Rome to recive his doctorate). From 1936 he was consecrated by the russian bishop Alekszander Ereinov in the Basilica of St Mary Major. In July of 1937 he returned home, untill 39 he was serving the villiages of Máramaros, after the Sub-Carpathians are under Hungarian controll again in 1939 he becomes the spiritual leader and the philosophy teacher of the seminar of Ungvár. In 1943 Pope Pius XII has raised in into the rank papal chaplian. On 24 September 1944, at the young age of 33, he was consecrated bishop and appointed apostolic administrator of the Eparchy of Mukacheve in the cathedral of Uzhorod by Bishop Miklós Dudás and co-consecrators: Scheffler János the Szatmár and Madarász István the Kassa Roman Chatolic bishops. when the Soviet Red Army marched in he was virtually the leader of the diocese.

He was a good example of caring about ethnicity since during his work he used the same language that that person spoke to speak ir write to them. Under the persacution of the religions by the Soviets when they took over controll of the region they tried to abolish the Greek Chatolic (Or uniting into the Ortodox Church.), under this period of time Tódor Rozsma became a key figure of the peacefull resistance against these efforts: He openly refused to break up the unity with Rome and to convert to the Praroslav church, he asked the priests and followers to keep being preservant and for unity among them.

Becouse his presistant resisting the Leader of the ukraininan Soviet party Hruscsov asked for the assasination of him, that was approved by Stalin, the man assigned to finish him was Szudoplatov Pavel (In the 30-s He personally blew up Konovelac ukranian leader who tried to organise mass emigration, and he was the one who organised Trockij ex-Soviet leaders assasination in Mexico.). Szavcsenko Hruscsov ukranian Home secretary was commisioned to do the deed, he left the implementation to unknown sub-carpathian police capitans who ordered a small group of the police of munkacs to kill him. On October 27 1947 when he was going home with his escort from the consecration of Lakva filial temple his carrige was rammed int he side by a military truck and the men inside the truck jumped out and attacked the escort and bishop with crankshafts. A postal truck stopped them from finishing him off and they escaped from the scene. Becosue of this they were able to take all survivors to the local hospital and even if the famous surgeon Ferdinec was able to save his life, the head physician Romaszék B. who worked together with the KGB hired an agent who was under the alias of a cleaning lady and later that night she poisioned him with an injection of Curare. In the dawn of the 1-st of November 1947 Romházi Tódor was offically dead.

The attack’s main goal was to break the resistance of the followers and the priests. But it didn’t happen. On the 4-th of November 1947 was a mourge day for all of the sub-carpathian greek chatolics and they burried the bishop the same day. They burred him in the crypt of the ungvar greek chatolic temple, but in 1949 the Soviet authorities gave the temple to the Ortodox church who removed the body of Tódor. On the 3-d of july 1998 László Puskás found the relics of Tódor in the ruins of the greek catholic church. For the offical indentification they asked the directress Hungarian Natrual History Museum’s Anthropological Instutucion Ildikó Pap to who did it with two colleagues, the remains were transferred to the museum. The Relics were transferred in ungvar in a great celebration on the 23-26-th of june 2003 and there were placed into the Saint cross sidealtar in the church. In 1997 László Puskás made the first icon of the martyr –the mosiac was covered on the ceiling of the ungvar church untill they saintified him, becosue at then martyr worship wasn’t allowed. After he was sainted in 2001 he painted more icons of him for the discose. On the 24-th of March 2001 they unveiled the statue of Tódor Rozsma in Lakitelek. Romzha was beatified as a Martyr for the Faith by Pope John Paul II in Lviv on 27 June 2001.
