Today is his feast day, what a wonderful priest and Saint! He had a great devotion to Our Lady. His story is described briefly here: https://www.thedivinemercy.org/articles/feast-day-st-maximilian-kolbe-aug-14 I am going to read his book someday, but note here this wonderful excerpt from the page above: "My dearest ones, let every fall, even the worst and most habitual, serve as a rung [of a ladder] always toward higher perfection. The Immaculata permits the fall only to cure us of our self-love, our pride, to bring us to humility and so make us more receptive to God's graces." I was shocked and saddened to read that he was killed by a lethal injection. He seems all the more like a Saint to invoke in these troubled times.
