Known throughout his life as the “Knight of the Immaculata,” St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe, OFM Conv., was born in Poland in 1894. When he was young, the Immaculate Virgin appeared to him and offered him two symbolic crowns: the white crown of chastity and the red crown of martyrdom. He accepted them both. Maximilian entered the Franciscan Order at the age of sixteen and was ordained priest in 1918 Maximilian founded the Militia Immaculatae (MI) Catholic evangelization movement to bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus by encouraging every soul to make a consecration of themselves to the Immaculate Virgin Mary. In January of 1922 he began publishing the monthly magazine, Knight of the Immaculata, despite having contracted Tuberculosis.
The Nazis imprisoned Kolbe in the Auschwitz death camp, where in 1941 he offered to take the place of a man condemned to die. He died two weeks later on August 14, the vigil of Mary’s Assumption. In 1982, St. Pope John Paul II canonized him as a “martyr of charity.” He is the patron saint of journalists, media communications, the family and the chemically addicted.
