Saint Maximilian Kolbe

August 14

Saint Maximilian KolbeDear Christ, Saint Maximilian Kolbe 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 Kolbe, pray for us.  Amen.


QUOTES by Saint Maximilian Kolbe

By dedicating ourselves to her (i.e. the Immaculate Virgin Mary) we become in her hands instruments of God’s mercy even as she was such an instrument in God’s hands. We should let ourselves be guided and led by Mary and rest quiet and secure in her hands. >>

Look, then, at the high dignity that by God’s mercy belongs to our state in life. Obedience raises us beyond the limits of our littleness and puts us in harmony with God’s will. In boundless wisdom and care, his will guide us to act rightly. >>

A single act of love makes the soul return to life. Let us often make use of this means. >>

No one in the world can change Truth. What we can do and should do is to seek truth and to serve it when we have found it. >>

Let us remember that love lives through sacrifice and is nourished by giving. Let’s remember that not everything which is good and beautiful pertains to essential love, because even without those other things love can be present. >>
