"That must have been an awesome story-telling occasion. Wow!"

He was a very humble man and like many war veterans, never dwelt on the horrors he saw and sacrifices he made, but spoke glowingly of the inspiration of Fr. Kolbe. Seeing his ID tattoo and the "1000 mile stare" and knowing the horrors of the death camps left an indelible impression on me.

The one message he gave was that when confronting evil faith alone was not enough, but that we are called to act upon our faith in His name.

So true. I think many of us do this in our own way.
