Feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe

Jean over at Catholic Fire has a great post on St. Maximilian Kolbe and the pro-life movement. She ends her post with these quotes from a man who was ahead of his time in his use of the media to spread the Gospel, making him the patron saint of journalists. I think he should also be the patron saint of bloggers.

Here are some of his pro-life quotes which have spoken to my heart:

"No one in the world can change Truth. What we can do and should do is to seek truth and to serve it when we have found it. The real conflict is the inner conflict. Beyond armies of occupation and the hecatombs of extermination camps, there are two irreconcilable enemies in the depth of every soul: good and evil, sin and love. And what use are the victories on the battlefield if we ourselves are defeated in our innermost personal selves?"

"The most deadly poison of our times is indifference. And this happens, although the praise of God should know no limits. Let us strive, therefore, to praise Him to the greatest extent of our powers."
