St. Maximillian Kolbe
Dear Family of Mary!
Today is the Memorial of St. Maximilian Kolbe! How fitting it is that we celebrate St. Maximilian on the day before the Feast of the Assumption. St. Maximilian understood the greatness of Our Lady and her role in these days in God’s plan. Here is one of the famous things he said about the Mother:
Our Lady has said the same thing to us in Medjugorje:
“Dear children!Today I rejoice with you and I invite you to open yourselves to me and become an instrument in my hands for the salvation of the world. I desire, little children, that all of you who have felt the odor of holiness through these messages which I am giving you to carry, [will] carry [them] into this world, hungry for God and God’s love. I thank you all for having responded in such a number and I bless you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.”(March 25, 1994)
So today, let’s pray the Consecration Prayer that St. Maximilian wrote, which will prepare us for Our Lady’s Feast Day tomorrow:
R. Give me strength against thy enemies.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
