Memorials to Saint Kolbe Hongochi Church・St. Kolbe Memorial Museum・Lourdes in Hongochi In 1984, the Vatican officially added the Hongochi Lourdes to its list of pilgrimage sites.

OVERVIEW

Maximilian Maria Kolbe OFM arrived in Nagasaki from Poland in 1930 and established the monastic order Ordo Fratrum Minorum Conventualium at the foot of Mt. Hiko. He propagated the “Innocent Heart of the Virgin Mary” through its publication Seibo no Kishi (the Knights of the Immaculata). He also met Dr.Nagai in Nagasaki, who gave him a medical examination.
St. Kolbe died at Auschwitz. In 1982, Pope Paul II canonized him and also applauded his colleague Friar Zenon for his vigorous missionary activities.
Right above the museum, in the neighborhood of Hongochi Monastery, Kolbe found a cave resembling the sacred one at Lourdes in France. Pope John Paul II visited this spot during his tour of Japan in 1981. In 1984, the Vatican officially added the Hongochi Lourdes to its list of pilgrimage sites.
