    A Saint to Inspire us all !

    I came upon this book at a time when I desperately needed to be reminded that good always triumphs, even over the most inconceivable evil. Aushwitz in 1941 was a place of unimaginable evil, and yet in that darkness, a shining light in the form of a humble Franciscan priest named Maximilian Kolbe, was there to spread a message of love of God and of neighbor to those suffering souls. His inumerable acts of charity culminated in his death for a fellow prisoner who he did not even know. Patricia Treece paints such a vivid portrait of this incredible saint through the use of eyewitness accounts of fellow prisoners who were fortunate enough to have lived with Kolbe. These firsthand accounts are unforgettable, and their incredibly detailed memories of the man Pope John Paul II called the 'Patron Saint of our difficult century' make this book one that you will never forget. Treece does a masterful job of introducing us all to this amazing saint. Reading this book, you yourself will feel as though you know Kolbe personlly. I thank God every day that I discovered this book !
