Start Novena to St. Maximilian Kolbe today! August 6, 2013

I don’t want to overlook those who adhere to the Novus Ordo calendar. Thanks to MJD for sending this to me, here is a Novena for the Feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe, which is on Aug. 14 in the Novus Ordo calendar (he’s not in the TLM calendar, as he was not a Saint, yet, when the calendar was last updated in 1962).

I can attest that St. Maximilian’s intercessions are quite powerful.

Why call on this saint for help?

Because he is known as the patron of our difficult age and a heavenly intercessor for:

  1. drug, alcohol and sexual addictions
  2. eating disorders
  3. the pro-life movement
  4. healing,spiritual, mental and physical conversionsFr_Maximilian_Kolbe_1936
  5. families
  6. prisoners
  7. success in a new ministry

Start novena prayer today!

O St. Maximilian Kolbe,

faithful follower of St. Francis,

inflamed by the love of God

you dedicated your life to the practice of virtue

and to works of the apostolate.

Look down with favor upon us

who devoutly confide in your intercession, especially for:

(here mention your special requests)

Having consecrated yourself to the Immaculate Virgin Mary,

you inspired countless souls to a holy life

and various forms of the apostolate

in order to do good to others

and to spread the kingdom of God.

Obtain for us the grace by our lives and labors img-20080513194124-maximilian-kolbe

to draw many souls to Christ.

In your close conformity to our Divine Savior

you reached such an intense degree of love

that you offered your life to save a fellow prisoner.

Implore God that we,

inflamed by such ardent charity,

may through our living faith and our apostolic works

witness Christ to others,

and thus merit to join you in the blessed vision of God.


There is another longer Novena here.


1. TG - August 6, 2013

Thanks for the novena prayer. Since I did my consecration to the Blessed Mother using a shorter version than the one by St. Louis DeMonfort (I’d have to be retired to do that version), 33 Days to Morning Glory, I learned a lot about St. Maximillian Kolby.
