Three years ago when Kenosis: Teen Disciples for Love and Life began, the high school students chose two patrons -- Bl. Chiara "Luce" Badano and St. Maximilian Kolbe. Today is the latter's feast, and in his honor, a quote from him:
"No one in the world can change Truth. What we can do and and should do is to seek truth and to serve it when we have found it. The real conflict is the inner conflict. Beyond armies of occupation and the hetacombs of extermination camps, there are two irreconcilable enemies in the depth of every soul: good and evil, sin and love. And what use are the victories on the battlefield if we are ourselves are defeated in our innermost personal selves?"
