Reviews

"Because of your portrayal of Maximilian Kolbe, who, as a result, has now become my 'guiding light' in overcoming 47 years of intense alcohol use, I am alcohol free - going on my 3rd year - and don't partake except at Daily Mass...It got me moving, thinking, and going to seek help and also looking into Our Lord of Divine Mercy." ~ J.K., Burlington, WI

"I had a beautiful and wonderful re-encounter with our Mother, the Immaculate Conception, whom I had abandoned. I am very blessed and thankful for such a wonderful gift of faith and love." ~ A.M., Huber Heights, OH

"One of my FAVE productions! Saw you at Christ Cathedral and loved it!! It was an extremely moving production that pierced me to my core. I went with my small faith community and we loved it!!!" ~ J.S.

"I watched Maximilian at the Martyr of St. George nuns at Alton, IL about 25 years ago, and I can still hear you singing 'Who are you, O Immaculate Conception? Who are you, and what would you have me do?' Is that grace or what?" ~ Fr. H., IL

"Maximilian had a great impact on my perspective and attitude. The sacrifice made by St. Maximilian Kolbe forced me to see that I need to be a servant to others, no matter the cost." ~ Cecilia C., Ephrata, WA
