**The cell where Father Kolbe died is now a shrine. Maximilian Kolbe was beatified as Confessor by Paul VI in 1970, and canonized as Martyr by Pope John Paul II in 1981.**
I stood and prayed outside this cell during my pilgrimage to Eastern Europe three summers ago.

Thank you, Sal. St. Maximillian Kolbe is one of my favorite saints.
His courage, charity, and death is a wonderful meditation.
