St. Maximillion Kolbe, pray for them.

14th August is the feast of St.Maximillion Kolbe, martyr of charity.

Among his patronage, St Maximillion Kolbe is a patron of imprisoned people, political prisoners, of families and of the pro-life movement.

St Maximilian Kolbe teaches us that we are called to give testimony to the truth and to the Light and to boldly oppose the dark powers that curse the radiance of Christ’s love with tyranny, injustice and cruelty.

The dark shadows that haunted the 20th century still haunt us today. But, because of the witness of saints like Maximilian Kolbe, we know that in Christ there is a light in the darkness that cannot be overcome.

Truth will prevail.
