Feast Day Fun: St Maximilian

St Maximilian 2

 

Welcome to Feast Day Fun: St Maximilian!

St Maximilian was the Founder of the Militia of Mary Immaculate, spreading devotion and consecration to the Mother of God. Together with the Franciscans, St Maximilian published writings about our Blessed Mother. He was arrested by the Nazis and volunteered to take the place of a family man, when prisoners were selected to be killed and he comforted his fellow prisoners as they were dying.
