Feast Day of Maximilian Kolbe

So important to share the stories of the faithful who stood in the gap for all of us.

Pastor Michael Moore's Blog

Especially as Nazi flags and salutes along with other Hateful flags not worthy of publicity (I was physically threatened because I stood up publicly and spoke for the removal of that flag from Courthouse property in FL two years ago), I remember this Franciscan who laid down his life for decency, compassion, and love…

May the spirit of this gentle friar speak to us today of love…

From the blog:

“The brothers housed 3,000 Polish refugees, two-thirds of whom were Jewish, and continued their publication work, including materials considered anti-Nazi. For this work the presses were shut down, the congregation suppressed, the brothers dispersed, and Maximilian was imprisoned in Pawiak prison, Warsaw, Poland on 17 February 1941.”
