Maximilian Kolbe A Saint in Auschwitz

It is too bad that St Max has been 'sanitised' in the post-Conciliar Church.

Looking for an engaging way to captivate readers both young and young at heart? I can’t recommend enough the new graphic novel from Jean-Francois Vivier Maximilian Kolbe: A Saint in Auschwitz. You read that right….graphic novel!
When this gem first arrived I was intrigued. It hooked me once I opened it. I cut my teeth on comic books….rather graphic novels growing up. The format drew me in immediately and the best part was this was not a fictional story of a superhero from a galaxy far, far away. Rather, it was a story about a real-life superhero Maximilian Kolbe.
The artwork in this graphic novel is fantastic and the story of Maximilian’s unfolds in the books 48 pages. You will follow along with Kolbe from his childhood through his early years as a priest up to his eventual internment and death in a Nazi prison camp. The book concludes with his canonization as a saint by Pope John Paul II.
I REALLY like this adaption of the life of Maximilian Kolbe. Shortly after I read through it my 7 year old son and 11 year old daughter took a turn and were equally enthralled. This book is  a must and one I highly recommend. Here’s hoping there will be more graphic novels on the lives of the saints to come!

Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
