St. Maximilian Kolbe Comments

Maximilian was born in 1894 in Poland and became a Franciscan. He contracted tuberculosis and, though he recovered, he remained frail all his life. Before his ordination as a priest, Maximilian founded the Immaculata Movement devoted to Our Lady. After receiving a doctorate in theology, he spread the Movement through a magazine entitled "The Knight of the Immaculata" and helped form a community of 800 men, the largest in the world. ...

    I am not sure that Catholics fully realize how privileged they truly are to have recorded, historical accounts of the countless numbers of saints, who offered their "ALL" to God ,through Jesus Christ our Lord ,during their amazing lifetimes spent in His service on Earth. It is also very clear that their ministry, as sons and daughters of God, continues after they depart from this physical realm; and that they are definitely able to respond to our petitions for help and their intercession for us while we are still here in our earthly existence; this having been proven beyond any doubt through countless intercessory prayer requests having been answered and firmly established. I would encourage all Christians to learn from the examples set by the known Saints, to pray for help to live truly Saintly and Holy lives in their walk with our Blessed Lord, as He instructed His own, true disciples to do while He was with them, and is still doing right now!: His words were and still are. "Be ye therefore Holy as our God is a Holy God, - be ye therefore perfect as your Father in Heaven is perfect and, - work out your salvation with fear and trembling!" So, whatever you do, do not take your eternal salvation lightly: even the world's greatest Saints who strived for perfect, love-motivated lives were saved only by the Grace of God. We as Christians should strive for nothing less; and our help will come to us from Heaven to give us the strength to remove all "disgrace" from our lives for love of God: - He who is Holy and is wholly worthy! May God bless you mightily in your dedicated Kingdom walk with Jesus!

    St. Maxilian Kolbe, please intercede and help pray to our Lord Jesus Christ. Lord Jesus give Mickey the strength to overcome his bad habits, clear his vision to righteousness, and the will to overcome obstacles. Please keep him away from evil people. Sacred of Jesus, I put all my trust in You. St. Kolbe and all the angels and saints, please help Mickey. Amen
