Novena to Saint Maximilian Kolbe

Novena to
Saint Maximilian Kolbe

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 St. Maximilian Kolbe 
whose life illustrated such love, we 
beseech you to grant us our petitions... 

(State your intention here.)

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. 

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


Recite the following prayers...

3 Hail Mary...
1 Glory Be...
