Title: SAINT MAXIMILIAN MARY KOLBE
This documentary tells of Saint Maximilian Mary Kolbe, a man with great apostolic zeal. It shows him as a precursor in the use of the Mass Media for the transmission of the Gospel and how he consumed his life with the testimony of love. It depicts his life as a martyr of charity in Auschwitz and shows how the source of his zeal was his passionate love for the Mother of God, the Immaculate. In the midst of many exterior difficulties, physically limited by his tuberculosis, we see how he worked passionately for the spread of the Gospel. His missionary life in Japan; his publications reaching as far as India, China, and even Arabia; and the city he founded in Poland called Niepokalanow, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin are also explored.
