The Saint of the Open Door

Today, the Church remembers St Maria Skobtsova, "the Saint of the Open Door," who died as a martyr in the Ravensbruck concentration camp in 1945.

An account of her remarkable life is available here.

"No amount of thought will ever result in any greater formulation than the three words, 'Love one another,' so long as it is love to the end and without exceptions."

- St. Maria Skobtsova
