Saint Maximilian Kolbe, the priest of Auschwitz, would be a wonderful patron saint for a young man receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation!

I painted the original of this image in acrylics, with a bit of colored pencil and metallic gold ink. It is painted on paper and measures 8 1/2 x 11 inches. He is shown holding an image of the miraculous Polish icon of Our Lady of Jasnagora, the "Black Madonna."

Saint Maximilian was (8 January 1894 – 14 August 1941) was a Polish Conventual Franciscan friar, who volunteered to die in place of a stranger in the German death camp of Auschwitz, located in German-occupied Poland during World War II. He was active in promoting the veneration of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, founding and supervising the monastery of Niepokalanów near Warsaw, operating a radio station, and founding or running several other organizations and publications
