St. Maximilian was an outstanding example
His bravery relied purely on the boundless powers given to the Immaculate Virgin. Let people put themselves in Her hands and be Her “docile instruments”.

Father Maximilian received the Sacrament of Holy Orders on April 28, 1918 in the Church of St. Andrew della Valle from Cardinal Vicar of Rome, Basil Pompilj.
