Entrust St. Maximilian with your desires, dreams, and hopes.

The missionaries in Poland will pray for your intentions every day, and on the fourteenth of every month, they will carry them to Auschwitz where Fr. Kolbe gave his life so that another might live. At his cell they will ask his intercession.

A Moment of Reflection and Prayer

On the fourteenth of every month we pray the Chaplet of St. Maximilian in communion with all the intentions sent to Poland, and we make a brief reflection.

There’s a prayer I pray daily with a line in it that took me a long time to begin to understand: Passion of Christ, my comfort be. My logic was that the passion of the Lord was a sad event where Jesus was crushed because of my sins. I didn’t see the comfort in knowing that I was responsible for his suffering. Perhaps some people think that way about today’s memorial: Our Lady of Sorrows. After all, it’s the story of a Mother that suffered her entire motherhood in deep ways. Yet, it brings solace to many.
