St. Maximilian Kolbe, Pray for Us!

I never realized the importance of where St. Maximilian's feast day close to the Assumption of the Blessed Mother, to whom He was consecrated and from whom he took the crown of martyrdom. What a gift our liturgical calendar is, to draw us evermore into the light of Christ.

“May the life of the Immaculate take possession of us ever more, day by day, hour by hour, moment by moment, and this without any limitation, growing, in the same way, in every soul that exists and will exist for all time: behold our beloved ideal.” (cf. SK #1210) -- St. Maximilian Kolbe
