Maximilian’s Sainthood

Pope Paul VI recognized Maximilian Kolbe as a Servant of God and beatified him as a "Confessor of the Faith" on October 17, 1971. Pope John Paul II cannonized him on October 10, 1982 saying "He bore witness to Christ and to love."

St. Maximilian Kolbe is often depicted in a prison uniform. He is the patron saint of drug addicts, prisoners, families, and the pro-life movement and his feast day is celebrated on August 14.
