St. Maximillian Mary Kolbe

So thought I'd post today's Saint. His story is remarkable. He followed our Lord to the end, taking the place of a fellow prisoner at Auschwitz sentenced to be stripped, locked away, and starved to death. See the link here.

"The miracle of the Resurrection is the foundation of our faith. The disciples of Jesus were weak; even though they had seen many miracles, at the time of his arrest they all abandoned him. Only when Jesus had risen was their faith confirmed, and were they given the courage to endure suffering and persecution."

- St. Maximilian Kolbe Feb. 11, 1938 (Conference)

St. Maximillian Mary Kolbe, Pray for us!
