Saint of the Month

AUGUST 14—MAXIMILIAN MARY KOLBE (1894-1941), born near Lodz, Poland, was a Franciscan priest and missionary to Japan.  In 1941, back in Poland, Kolbe was arrested by the Gestapo and sent to Auschwitz labor camp.  As a punishment for the escape of a prisoner, the Nazis marked nine inmates for death by starvation.  Kolbe stepped forward and offered his life in exchange for the father of a family.  He was starved for some time before the Nazis murdered him by lethal injection.  Kolbe was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 1982.
