On the Patronal Solemnity of St. Maximilian Kolbe, Father comments on the Marian Consecration taught and lived by St. Maximilian Kolbe. He reminds us of two things: firstly, Mary takes our consecration to Her seriously, and, secondly, once we make our consecration we will be expected to fulfill it, especially when it goes against our own will and self-love.  We don't live poetry or sentimentality, to desire to "Live, work, suffer, and die for the Immaculate" is an illusion without daily application, virile commitment, heroic fidelity, and total self-sacrifice. Quoting from the "Book of Sanctification" of the Franciscans of the Immaculate, Father reads: "In the Marian Vow is found the most complete and radical offer of self to the Immaculate: She may demand "everything" from Her consecrated, ask any sacrifice and heroism, even that of being consumed as a victim of sacrifice and of immolating one's life with the violent death of a martyr, after the example of the death of St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe."
