St. Maximilian Kolbe

Today is the feast day (August 14th) of St. Maximilian Kolbe, who died in a concentration camp because He willing took the place of a condemned man that was a father of children so that the man could be released. This heroic action of love is an example for us to imitate. "There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends" (John 15:33)

See my post on St. Maximilian Kolbe for more information.
