Conventual Franciscan Brother Camillus Delude died late last month. He was nearly 90 years old. Deeply inspired by St. Maximilian Kolbe, he spent many years involved in the process of publishing and printing the great Franciscan saint’s writings. In honor of Brother Camillus, his fellow friars have created the Brother Camillus – Kolbe Translation Fund.
Members of the public are welcome to support this new entity, which will allow the Conventual Franciscans to continue translating the works of St. Maximilian Kolbe into English and then publish them so that they may be publicly available.
Brother Camillus died in Palatine, Illinois. His funeral took place at Marytown in Libertyville. Marytown is the location of the National Shrine of St. Maximilian Kolbe, a place where pilgrims can learn about Maximilian who during World War II gave up his life so that another man could live.
