THE MUSIC WE PLAY
Maximillian Mary Kolbe was born in Poland in 1894. He joined the Franciscans and consecrated himself to Mary Immaculate. He undertook an intense apostolic mission in Europe and Asia through the Militia of the Immaculata that preached through the print media. During the holocaust, he was arrested and confined at Auschwitz. One day when one of the prisoners escaped the concentration camp, the Nazis decided to execute several men in exchange for the escapee. Maximillian offered himself in exchange for a father of a large family. This father was spared ? and even lived to see the day of Maximillian?s canonization ? while Maximillian was thrown into solitary confinement. For days, Maximillian, together with several others, was not given any food or drink while he encouraged them in the faith, heard their confession and led them in prayer. Finally, Maximillian was martyred through lethal injection in 1941. Aside from being the ?Martyr of Charity,? Pope John Paul proclaimed him the ?Patron of Our Suffering Century,? a shining example of the words of the Lord in today?s Gospel: ?Greater love no man has than to lay down his life for his friends.?
Even while I live, Father, may my life be a beautiful piece that people will want to listen to.
St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe, martyr, pray for us.
