St Maximilian Kolbe

Today we celebrate the feast of Maximilian Kolbe.

“Despite, the loss of his father, his own poor health, the forces of religious apathy around him, and the Nazi regime, Kolbe spent his life focussed on serving others out of love for Jesus Christ and Mary, his mother. A theologian, a great communicator, a generous labourer, a prisoner, Kolbe died at Auschwitz as he had always lived, serving others and giving all that he had for love of God and neighbour.”

From a reflection on St Maximilian Kolbe by Matthew Harrison
