A man whose boots the greatest men and women in our world are not worthy to lick.

St. Maximilian Kolbe, pray for us in our hour of need.

This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you.

Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

You are my friends, if you do the things that I command you.

- Gospel According to Saint John Chpt 15: 12-14

My son-in-law’s uncle was a young Polish priest imprisoned at Auschwitz with Fr. Kolbe. I have heard first hand accounts of Fr. Kolbe’s sacrifice and faith. A truly inspiring man.

I used to teach the biographical story of Kolbe, "Volunteer at Auschwitz" (Chuck Colson), to my students. About half of it is reprinted here (pp. 803-06).
