On the Life and Spirituality of St. Maximilian Kolbe

Father Kolbe in Nagasaki

Father Kolbe in NagasakiCome to know about the life of St. Maximilian Kolbe in Japan and his love for Our Lady!

In 1930, he founded a friary in Nagasaki (still active) amid seemingly impossible challenges and hardships with the help of the Immaculata. This book was written by a Japanese Franciscan Conventual Friar, Brother Ozaki, who, in 1945, entered the same friary founded by St. Maximilian – just two months after Nagasaki was blasted by the atomic bomb. Brother Ozaki resided with the friars who personally knew and lived with St. Maximilian and who highly admired the saint’s heroic act of martyrdom for a fellow prisoner. This engaging book tells of these friars’ endearing experiences and memories of St. Maximilian during those six years – sure to stir interest not only in this heroic saint – but also Our Lady.

The Writings of St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe

In his relatively short, but very fruitful life, St. Maximilian Kolbe left behind an impressive body of writings. In the 1950s the English-speaking world first began reading bits and pieces of those writings translated from the original Polish, Italian and Latin. Now, at long last, devotees and scholars alike can find the entire wide-ranging array of those writings collected together in a two-volume compendium, published by Nerbini International.
