Regarding the featured saint, Maximilan Kolbe, Aug. 7, Page 3:

The story says St. Maximilian was “born in Russian Poland.” Poland was never Russian and it’s extremely offensive to all Polish people to see it written this way. Poland was under Russian occupation, but was never Russian. Many Polish people gave their lives to free their motherland. History matters and it’s important to keep it accurate.
