Saint Maximilian Kolbe, the priest of Auschwitz, would be a wonderful patron saint for a young man receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation!

Sue painted the portrait in this image in acrylics, with a bit of colored pencil and metallic gold ink. It is painted on paper and measures 8 1/2 x 11 inches. He is shown holding an image of the miraculous Polish icon of Our Lady of Jasnagora, the "Black Madonna."

Saint Maximilian was (8 January 1894 - 14 August 1941) was a Polish Conventual Franciscan friar, who volunteered to die in place of a stranger in the German death camp of Auschwitz, located in German-occupied Poland during World War II. He was active in promoting the veneration of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, founding and supervising the monastery of Niepokalanów near Warsaw, operating a radio station, and founding or running several other organizations and publications.

"My aim is to institute perpetual adoration," said St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe, "for this is the most important activity," and "if half of the Brothers would work, and the other half pray, this would not require too much."

Kolbe was canonized on 10 October 1982 by Pope John Paul II, and declared a martyr of charity. He is the patron saint of drug addicts, political prisoners, families, journalists, prisoners, and the pro-life movement. Saint John Paul II declared him "The Patron Saint of Our Difficult Century".(Wikipedia)

Due to Kolbe's efforts to promote consecration and entrustment to Mary, he is known as the Apostle of Consecration to Mary.

"The Immaculate alone has from God the promise of victory over Satan. She seeks souls who will consecrate themselves entirely to her, that will become in her hands forceful instruments for the defeat of Satan and the spread of God's kingdom."(Saint Maximilian Kolbe)
