Aim Higher! Reflections of Maximilian KolbeRegular price $ 6.25
A translation from the Polish by Fr. Dominic Wisz, OFM CONV.
The wisdom of the "patron of our difficult century"
When you are preparing to read about the Immaculata, do not forget you are entering into contact with a living being. She will reveal herself through the sentences and suggest thought and convictions of which the author probably did not think.
Such are the intimate rewards of reading Marian theology with an attitude of faith-filled expectancy, wrote Maximilian Kolbe. How much more will a reader encounter Mary by pondering the thoughts of Kolbe himself, the great 20th century priest, publisher, theologian and martyr of charity. May this be your experience with Aim Higher!, a collection of spiritual insights by the saint Pope Paul VI called "clairvoyant" in his anticipation of the Marian theology of the Second Vatican Council.
An entire section of Aim Higher! is devoted to the interior development of religious. In this hyper-secularized age when priests and religious are pressured to adopt attitudes contrary to ones authentically Catholic and Christian, Aim Higher! could become an invaluable gift for a seminarian, sister or parish priest you may know and care about.
Enjoy the clear-sighted wisdom of the "patron of our difficult century" as Pope John Paul II proclaimed Kolbe. And don't be afraid to aim higher!
