St. Maximilian Kolbe! As my husband likes to say, \”He\’s the man!!\” Of course he says that about a lot of guy saints. 🙂 If you don\’t know about this wonderful saint who had a pure love of the Immaulata and gave his life for another man at a Nazi German death camp, then please read about him HERE and HERE.
His feast day is August 14.
St. Maximilian\’s ornament is a \”piece\” of his prison shirt.
Elizabeth and I cut out black felt strips and glued them onto a white square. We added a red triangle with a \”P\” drawn on it with a black sharpie marker. We also outlined the red triangle. We wrote St. Max\’s prisoner number – 16670 – on an off-white rectangle. We also outlined it with a brown permanent marker and then glued it all on to the black and white striped square.
This ornament sure has sparked some conversations around our house! 😉
St. Maximilian Mary Koble, Pray for us!
