Saint Maximilian Kolbe

August 14

Saint Maximilian KolbeDear Christ, Saint Maximilian was imprisoned in Auschwitz where he ministered to the captives and celebrated Mass by consecrating bread and wine that had been smuggled in.  He was martyred after he voluntarily took the place of a young married prisoner condemned to die.  Since he’s the patron saint of drug addicts and people in prison, I ask him to intercede for the inmates in our jails.  O Lord, heal their hearts and protect them from the evil that surrounds them.  I also ask him to pray for the addicts in my family and my friends’ families.  O Lord, set them free from the prison of their addictions.  Saint Maximilian, pray for us.  Amen.
