When he was only a child, St. Maximilian Kolbe had a vision of Mary. She offered him two crowns, one red, the other white, to symbolize a life of purity and eventual martyrdom. During World War II, St. Kolbe was imprisoned in the Auschwitz death camp. In 1941, he offered his own life in the place of another prisoner—the most literal imitation of Christ possible. St. Kolbe’s life and heroic death inspires countless people to this day, and this charm serves as a reminder that our lives are best spent when they are lived for others.
Small enough to fit on your fingertip, Tiny Saints are a lovely way to bring the simple joy of Christ with you wherever you go!
