St. Maximilian- I will not serve as a soldier of this world, for I am a soldier of Christ.

St. Maximilian, a 3rd century conscientious objector and martyr in North Africa, was killed for refusing conscription to the Roman army. He was 21 when he was brought before the Roman court. Click here to read an actual translated account of Maximilian’s trial.

In Peace,
the CPF Staff
