Novena Prayer to St. Maximilian Kolby

O Lord Jesus Christ, who said, "greater love than this no man has that a man lay down his life for his friends," through the intercession of Saint Maximilian Kolbe whose life illustrated such love, we beseech you to grant us our petitions ... (mention the requests you have).

Through the Militia Immaculata movement, which Maximilian founded, he spread a fervent devotion to Our Lady throughout the world. He gave up his life for a total stranger and loved his persecutors, giving us an example of unselfish love for all men, a love that was inspired by true devotion to Mary, Mother of God.

Grant, 0 Lord Jesus, that we too may give ourselves entirely without reserve to the love and service of our Heavenly Queen your Mother in order to better love and serve our fellow man in imitation of your humble servant, Saint Maximilian. Amen.


Three Hail Marys and a Glory be.
