Love is always enough … A MUST READ

FullSizeRender (22)

Saint Maximilian Kolbe was a polish priest who gave his life freely in place of another prisoner during the Nazi terror. He demonstrated the great love which Jesus spoke of in the last supper discourse:

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” John 15:13.

The picture above captures the most recent visit of Pope Francis to the cell of Maximilian Kolbe. He visited that place for he desired, as we all do, to have the charity of such a remarkable saint who is not remarkable for his intellect or accomplishments, but for his love.

Known as the Martyr of Charity, his love was perfected because he gave his whole self to the Blessed Virgin Mary, whom he addressed as the Immaculata. He wanted to raise a spiritual army in her honor. If we give our lives to Mary, she can fashion our hearts after her Immaculate Heart, so that we can become vessels receptive to the mercy, forgiveness, and love of Almighty God. When we love with the heart of Mary and when we live for Christ and not ourselves …. love is always enough.13912798_1783378041905578_532970357309339059_n
