Born in Poland to a poor family, and once a mischievous child, Raymond decided to change his ways upon having a vision of the Virgin Mary around the time of his first Communion. At the age of seventeen he took the name Maximilian and made his first vows. He made his last vows in 1914, the same year his father was hung by the Russians for being a traitor. In 1917 while in Rome, he and six friends founded the Immaculata Movement, which taught the devotion to Our Lady and the path to Christ. After travelling through Rome and returning to Poland, he founded his friary Niepokalanow (City of the Immaculate) in 1927. Feeling the need to do more he travelled through Japan and India, but poor health and not achieveing his goals led him back to Poland in 1936. Soon after, the Nazis invaded and he and his brothers were arrested. Transferred to Auschwitz in 1941, he volunteered himself to die in place of a father of young children who had been chosen to die as retribution for an escaped prisoner.
