St. Max's Candy

No one in the world can change Truth. What we can do and should do is to seek truth and to serve it when we have found it. The real conflict is the inner conflict. Beyond armies of occupation and the hecatombs of extermination camps, there are two irreconcilable enemies in the depth of every soul: good and evil, sin and love. And what use are the victories on the battlefield if we ourselves are defeated in our innermost personal selves? - Saint Maximilian Kolbe in the last issue of the Knight

Our version of Ptasie Mleczko, or Bird's Milk, a Polish candy that we have been enjoying for a few years now in honor of one of our favorite Polish saints. We simply call it St. Max's Candy.
This year, we opted for coffee ice cream. It was cooler this morning but the rain that trickled down only made it muggier and more humid which, in turn, only encouraged our desire for something cool and creamy. We were also inspired by a sweet friend to try white chocolate this year and some left over sliced almonds from the pantry. Yum!
And don't forget, the one that started it all: St. Maximilian Kolbe Coloring Page
