St. Maximilian Kolbe
Dear Family of Mary!
May 25, 1996 “Dear children! Today I wish to thank you for all your prayers and sacrifices that you, during this month which is consecrated to me, have offered to me.
Little children, I also wish that you all become active during this time that is through me connected to heaven in a special way.
Pray in order to understand that you all, through your life and your example, ought to collaborate in the work of salvation. Little children, I wish that all people convert and see me and my son, Jesus, in you.
I will intercede for you and help you to become the light. In helping the other, your soul will also find salvation. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
On this last day of our novena, we celebrate St. Maximilian Kolbe, one of the most amazing Marian saints in history. St. Maximilian was given the light to truly understand the role that Our Lady has in salvation history. He constantly taught consecration to Mary, and tried to help people understand how much we need her. Everything he did, he did for her!
This message (above) reminds me of St. Maximilian, in that he was always offering prayers and sacrifices for Our Lady’s intentions, and was totally consecrated to Mary. He understood very well that our lives and examples must collaborate in the work of salvation. He lived a life dedicated to reaching out to people around the world with the Gospel, and consecration to Mary. And he understood better than anyone how Our Lady connects us with heaven!
Medjugorje is a special gift from God, a time that through Our Lady is connected to heaven in a special way!! We all feel it, and we know how desperately the entire world needs this connection with heaven through Our Lady. She is the only one who can protect us from the powers of hell, and defeat them.
When we celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we celebrate our own victory! Like her we will one day enter heaven, if we follow her lead, and become filled with the Light of her Son Jesus, who loves us and saves us!
Thank you, dearest Mother, for providing this time which through you is connected to Heaven in such a special way!
Let us pray:
The Assumption Novena
Mary, Queen Assumed into Heaven, I rejoice that after years of heroic martyrdom on earth, you have at last been taken to the throne prepared for you in heaven by the Holy Trinity.
Lift my heart with you in the glory of your Assumption above the dreadful touch of sin and impurity. Teach me how small earth becomes when viewed from heaven. Make me realize that death is the triumphant gate through which I shall pass to your Son, and that someday my body shall rejoin my soul in the unending bliss of heaven.
From this earth, over which I tread as a pilgrim, I look to you for help. I ask for this favor: (Mention your request).
When my hour of death has come, lead me safely to the presence of Jesus to enjoy the vision of my God for all eternity together with you. Amen
Pray the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary and be filled with joy!
And have a wonderful and joyous Feast Day of the Assumption tomorrow!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
