Saint Philip of Neri Church in Lafayette Hill is hosting the live drama of Maximilian, Saint of Auschwitz on Wednesday, October 22nd at 7;30 p.m. The drama’s website describes the story of Saint Maximilian as follows:
In a dramatic one-man performance by Leonardo Defilippis, Maximilian opens with the young Raymond Kolbe, son of devout Polish parents, expressing his desire to be a priest. In spite of the trials he encounters as a seminarian, he is sustained in his journey to the priesthood by a vision from the Blessed Mother who offers him the choice between two crowns – one of purity or one of martyrdom. He boldly chooses both. This now sets the stage for the unfolding of the intense plot.
The performance is free. Below are a trailer and flyer:
