“Life begins to make sense when we recognize and acknowledge God’s infinite goodness and our absolute dependence on Him. Our response will be praise and total love expressed in obedience.”

Saint Maximilian Kolbe

Saint Maximilian Kolbe OFM Conv. was a Polish Conventual Franciscan Friar who volunteered to die in place of a stranger in the German death camp of Auschwitz. Kolbe was canonized in 1982 by St. Pope John Paul II who declared Saint Maximilian Kolbe to be a Martyr of Charity. He is considered the patron saint of families, journalists, prisoners, drug-addicts, and the pro-life movement.
