A Saint Indeed

I hate to admit it but I was only vaguely familiar with the story of the Catholic Priest and Saint, Father Maximilian Kolbe, who was at Auschwitz and sacrificed his life to save a Jewish man.

How Christlike can you get? I am in awe of this man (and I am a very staunch Protestant!)

Captain's Quarters has the entire story. It is inspiring and really worth reading.

I just wish my computer wouldn't refuse to let me comment there (for some reason it will not allow me to log in, even though I have an account.)

Facinating story. I would like to say that I would be as Christlike as the priest, but I don't know that I would have the courage.
