Excuse me if this sounds in any manner disrespectful but - Oh my gosh - I love this guy!

I saw a documentary entitled "Maximilian - Saint of Auschwitz performed by Leonardo Defilippis last year. What an incredibly inspiring story - a Saint in every sense of the word!

Truly not a story that is easily forgotten.

I'd heard of him,and then saw his story in the video, Ocean of Mercy, which also has the lives of St. Faustina and JPII What a powerful powerful display of "laying down one's life for one's friend." Pray for us St. Maximilian, for courage in the face of our enemy, to love all with a power more relentless than death.
