The Polish-born Franciscan Friar had spent the previous twenty-three years as a priest, evangelizer, media mogul, social commentator, missionary and religious reformer. His life’s work cut short at age 47, St. Kolbe nonetheless left behind an impressive body of writings. In the 1950s the English-speaking world first began reading bits and pieces of those writings translated from the original Polish, Italian and Latin. Now, at long last, devotees and scholars alike can find the entire wide-ranging array of those writings collected together in a two-volume compendium, published by Nerbini International.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe publication of the first English critical edition, \u003ci\u003eThe Writings of St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe,\u003c\/i\u003e constitutes a historic event for the English-speaking readership. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe sublime inspiration of the Saint's Marian thought and spirituality transpires from every page of his writings, whether it be a treatise on the relationship between the Holy Spirit and the Immaculate Conception, an evangelization plan, a message of counsel to religious and laity, or a filial letter to his mother. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\"His deep personal relationship with the Immaculate Virgin Mary colors and enflames nearly every page. His leitmotif is love for God, the Church, the world and all its peoples. His goal is the conversion and sanctification of that world. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\"Under the general editorship of Antonella Di Piazza, FKMI, the text has meticulous footnotes, comprehensive indices, and a brilliant introduction by Fr. Giuseppe Simbula, OFM Conv. \"Because the frenetic pace of St. Kolbe's active ministry afforded him no time to compose a theological \u003ci\u003eSumma,\u003c\/i\u003e this edition assembles together the wide scope of his extant writings into a unified synthesis. It represents a virtual \u003ci\u003emagnum opus\u003c\/i\u003e of Kolbean thought-- at one and the same time pastoral, anthropological, philosophical, spiritual, ascetical and mystical. \"In the person of St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe (1894-1941), the first half of the twentieth century found a fresh voice fearlessly defending timeless values in the contemporary context. \"These two volumes give vigorous new life to this prophetic voice of truth.\"\u003cbr\u003e--Fr.
