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...
