An event every year that begins at 12:00am on of August, repeating indefinitely


The Catholic priest and evangelist who founded the City of the Immaculata in Poland and Nagasaki, and who offered his life for another at Auschwitz. He had a relatively normal childhood, notes Word on Fire, with one exception: “One night in Kolbe’s childhood, Our Lady appeared to him in a dream holding a white crown and a red crown. He later related, ‘She asked if I was willing to accept either of these crowns. The white one meant that I should persevere in purity, and the red that I should become a martyr. I said that I would accept them both.’ So, yes, St. Maximillian had a normal childhood, but with one tremendous difference that was to define the course of his life.” See 9 Things to Know about St. Maximilian Kolbe at the Word on Fire website for…well, eight more fascinating facts about this modern saint!
