    My breviary has a story by inmates of Auschwitz that said he was sent to the starvation chamber (when he took the place of the other prisoner) – and died from starvation, not lethal injection

    What a wonderful article on a great saint!

    Lindsay Roe – your breviary is correct in saying that the saint was sent with others to the starvation chamber. But after so many days, St Maximilian did not die, and the prison guards needed the chamber to starve other prisoners, so they injected the saint with a lethal dose of carbolic acid.

We can provide a Medal + leaflet (explaining how Our Lady appeared to St Catherine Laboure) for a very nominal amount (25cents). Bulk orders welcome. Email: LegionOfMaryCanberra@gmail.com.
