I am way behind on posting the Saint of the Day. Here are links last week’s missing Saints:
St. Maximillian Mary Kolbe,’ a Polish Franciscan, offered his life in exchange for the life of a family man doomed to execution by the Nazis at Auschwitz. His memorial feast is celebrated by the Roman Catholic Church on August 14, when this reading forms part of the Divine Office of Readings and contrasts religious indifferentism with the path of obedience to God’s will, prudence, wisdom and perfect love. Fr. Maximilian Kolbe was canonized on October 10, 1982 by Pope John Paul II, and declared “a martyr of charity.” He is the patron saint of drug addicts, political prisoners, families, journalist, amateur radio, prisoners, and the pro-life movement. Pope John Paul II declared him the “The Patron Saint of Our Difficult Century.” Read what this great Saint has to say here.
