Amen! Visiting his cell at Auschwitz was heart wrenching yet warm. There was a candle in it that was left by Pope John Paul II when he visited Kolbe’s cell.
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.
