Profile

Born to a poor, rural family, he had limited schooling and had to work from an early age. Joined the Friars Minor Conventual in Niepokalanów, Poland on 5 March 1930, taking the name Tymoteusz and making his solemn profession on 11 February 1935. Worked in the convent infirmary, and the warehouse and shipping departments of the magazine Rycerz Niepokalanej (Knight of the Immaculate) with its founder Saint Maximilian Kolbe. At one point Brother Tymoteusz tried to go to the foreign missions, but gave it up when the Nazis invaded Poland to start World War II. Arrested with six of his brother friars in October 1941 by the Gestapo, and sentenced for forced labour at the Auschwitz death camp for the crime of being Catholic. Ministered to his fellow prisoners in his remaining few months. Martyr.
