Lump In Throat, Tear In Eye...

Over at the Crescat, Carolina Cannonball and Steve have prepared posts on the martyrdom of St. Maximilian Kolbe and the reactions of Franciszek Gajowniczek (the man saved by the action of Fr. Kolbe) as today is St. Maximilian's feast day. It is very difficult to read either post without getting very, very emotional. Fabulous job guys...

Wow. The Church has such great saints... It makes me proud to be Catholic.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. CC indulged me a bit today to go all-out in paying tribute to my patron saint.

No matter how many times I read St. Maximilian's story, I still get emotional. He was truly a gift to the Church.

A wondeful saint indeed. Here is an account of his life from a radio perspective: http://ham-shack.com/history-misc.html

Note there is a radio net devoted to him on Sunday evenings. you will need a short wave receiver able to copy single side band.
He is patron siant of radio amatuers, the life movement and the internet.

I enjoyed the posts on Maximilian. I learned so much more about him and developed a greater appreciation. It was all Steve's doing. ;-)
