St. Maximilian Kolbe Prayer

Including a video greeting from Our Lady of the Angels Province – Minister Provincial, the Very Reverend Fr. James McCurry, OFM Conv.

Amidst hate and imprisonment,
you brought love into the lives of fellow captives
and sowed the seeds of hope amidst despair.
You bore witness to the whole world by word and deed that
Love alone creates.”

V.  Pray for us, St. Maximilian Kolbe.
R. Help us become worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:
Heavenly Father, You inflamed St. Maximilian the friar and priest with love for the Immaculate Virgin and filled him with zeal for souls and love of neighbor. Through his prayers grant us to work strenuously for Your glory in the service of our sisters and brothers, and so be made conformable to Your Son until death.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

St. Pope John Paul II blessing the statue of St. Maximilian M. Kolbe, OFM Conv., gifted to him by our friars at the October 10, 1982 canonization. Our current Minister Provincial, Friar James (top video greeting) was on hand that day. That same statue now resides in a small shrine on the property of The Shrine of St. Anthony, in Ellicott City, MD (top photo).
