Saint Maximilian Mary Kolbe - August 14

Saint Maximilian Mary Kolbe
August 14

"No one has greater love than this,
to lay down one's life for one's friends
." John 15:13

Maximilian Mary Kolbe was born on January 8, 1894, in Russian occupied Poland, and given the baptismal name Raymond. In 1906 the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to him and offered him two crowns, the grace of virginity and martyrdom. She asked him which one he wanted to which he begged for both.
