Our Pastor’s Patron Saint is St. Maximilian Kolbe, and he visited his cell in Auschwitz twice. He spent quite a lot of time this morning talking about his visit to Auschwitz, and St. Kolbe. He has a relic, 3 hairs, that he brought to Mass this morning. After Mass we all kissed the relic. Quite an emotional morning.
It was an emotional pilgrimage for me too, as I visited his cell at Auschwitz and went to his Ministry home at Niepokalanow.
I suggest that anyone who makes it to Europe MUST also go to Auschwitz!
