While Dietrich Bonhoefferwas a theology professor at Berlin University, he also had the opportunity to teach a confirmation class of fifty boys in Wedding, a tough neighborhood in North Berlin. Bonhoeffer was extremely pastoral during this time…

When one of the boys fell ill, Bonhoeffer visited him in the hospital two or three times a week, and before the operation, he prayed with him. The doctors were convinced his leg would have to be amputated, but quite miraculously, it was saved. The boy made a complete recovery and was confirmed with the others.
