And what use are the victories on the battlefield if we ourselves are defeated in our innermost personal selves?”

St. Maximilian Kolbe was a Polish Conventual Franciscan friar, who volunteered to die in place of a stranger in Auschwitz during World War II. He is the patron saint of addicts, drug addiction, and the pro-life movement.
