Saint of the Day

St. Maximilian Kolbe (1894-1941)
Maximilian was the Polish Franciscan that began the Militia Immaculata movement. Tuberculosis made him frail throughout his life. In 1941 he was sent to Auschwitz, where he offered his life in exchange for another prisoner. After two weeks of starvation, he was killed by lethal injection.

Reflections from the Saints

Life in Christ: Catechism #2367

Called to give life, spouses share in the creative power and fatherhood of God. "Married couples should regard it as their proper mission to transmit human life and to educate their children; they should realize that they are thereby cooperating with the love of God the Creator and are, in a certain sense, its interpreters. They will fulfill this duty with a sense of human and Christian responsibility."
