    Friends, I am of Polish and Scottish descent by birth, and I primarily identify as Polish (because I was adopted by a family in which my maternal relatives are Polish).

    I know about Maximilian Kolbe, but what other traditional Catholic saints were Polish? How about non-canonized heroes of the Faith?

    Say "Wojtyla", even as a joke, and I will reach through the internets and slap you! ;)

    I am also aware that while Faustina Kowalska lived and died a traditional Catholic,  her 'diary' is suspect (and was forbidden at one time) and any devotion was suppressed under legitimate Popes. So much for the 'Divine Mercy', I guess.

    Anyway, dziekuje! Thanks in advance!

    Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!

    Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
    This evil of heresy spreads itself. The doctrines of godliness are overturned; the rules of the Church are in confusion; the ambition of the unprincipled seizes upon places of authority; and the chief seat [the Papacy] is now openly proposed as a rewar

    Well, St. Maximilian Kolbe was half Polish and half German. But in any case, there is a great number of Polish saints and saintly persons.

    One of the most well known might be the patron saint of Poland and Lithuania, St. Casimir. Others are St. Hyacinth (of Poland), St. Stanislaus the Martyr, St. Stanislaus Kostka. St. John Cantius and many more.

    Some missionaries like Otto of Bamberg or Bruno of Querfurt are also venerated in Poland, even though they are not of Polish descent.

    Scratch from the list Maria Faustyna Kowalska.

    I think the list might keep you busy for a bit. :wink:
