St. Maximilian Kolbe's Desire

That many more people consecrate themselves to the Blessed Virgin Mary and that all who are consecrated to Mother Mary be eternally saved, and become Jesus’ perpetual and unfailing light, so that Satan be rebuked from the face of the earth.

St. Maximilian Kolbe’s Prayer
of Consecration to Mary

O Immaculata, Queen of Heaven and earth, refuge
of sinners and our most loving Mother, God has willed
to entrust the entire order of mercy to thee.

I, N___, a repentant sinner, cast myself at thy feet
humbly imploring thee to take me with all that I am
and have, wholly to thyself as thy possession and
property.

Please make of me, of all my powers of soul and
body, of my whole life, death and eternity, whatever
most pleases thee.

If it pleases thee, use all that I am and have without
reserve, wholly to accomplish what was said of thee:
“She shall crush your head,” and, “Thou alone hast
destroyed all heresies in the whole world.”

Let me be a fit instrument in thine Immaculate
and merciful hands for introducing and increasing
thy glory to the maximum in all the many strayed
and indifferent souls, and thus help extend as far
as possible the blessed Kingdom of the most
Sacred Heart of Jesus.

For wherever thou enterest, one obtains the grace
of conversion and growth in holiness, since it is
through thy hands that all graces come to us from
the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

V. Allow me to praise thee O Sacred Virgin.
R. Give me strength against thy enemies.

Prayer to Saint Maximilian Maria Kolbe

St. Maximilian, amidst the hate and lonely misery of Auschwitz, you brought love into the lives of fellow captives and sowed the seeds of hope amidst despair. You bore witness to the world by word and deed that “Love alone creates.” Help me to become more like you. With the Church and Mary and you, may I proclaim that “Love alone creates.” To the hungry and oppressed, the naked and homeless, the scorned and hated, the lonely and despairing, may I proclaim the power of Christ’s love, which endures forever and ever. Amen.
