Patron Saint of Ham Radio


  The seventh of January marks the 118th anniversary of  Maximilion Kolbe’s birth. Holder of Polish amateur radio call sign SP3RN, Franciscan friar Kolbe voluntarily took the place of a condemned prisoner at the  Auschwitz death camp. In 1982 Father Kolbe was canonized by Pope John Paul II. 


  Today in an Oplatek (sharing of the wafer) church pageant, my boy Tommy acted the part of Father Kolbe.


My little girl Fawn artfully played the part of another brave Polish martyr,  Karolina Kozka. After the show we all enjoyed the aptly named “Feast of the Kings”.
