Saint Maximillian Kolbe is an amazing figure to know. A convert, a prisoner in a concentration camp, and a martyr for the faith, his story seems too much to believe. He offers himself in place of another man, who had a family, and so dies. Can anyone imagine doing this? How did it come to the point where Saint Maximillian Kolbe could do this? The short answer is that long before this, he started to get to know Jesus. When the moment came, this relationship was so strong it sustained him. The same is true for each one of us. If we get to know Jesus, we can do great things by imitating him.
