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.

    He founded the "Militia Immaculata"...why has this word, "Militia," been forsaken by modern theologians?
    It seems the spirit of combat, that virtue with which we are filled in Confirmation, has been cast aside in favor of tolerance and warm fuzzies.

    St. Maximillian was a knight of our Lady, in the truest sense. He fought openly against Communists and especially Freemasons, who inspired St. Maximillian to found the MI when they were parading openly in Rome with banners depicting Lucifer crushing St. Michael and declaring that Satan would one day rule the Vatican.

    this is very important information...why is it omitted from his biography?

    Saint Kolbe please help me overcome my physical dependence on tranquilizer. Please allow my body to heal itself so I can live a full life in place of the shadow I am living in now. Please let me overcome this in peace and restore my health, and I will make it my mission in life to prevent this from happening to others.

    Dear St. Maximilian Kolbe,

    Please help me to overcome my addiction to alcohol and prescription pills before I ruin my life more than I already have. Please grant me the strength to resist any temptations that may be thrown my way. I am 25 years old and married to the love of my life. Please allow me to give up my addictions so I can live a long healthy life with my husband and our future children. I beg you to help me restore my health, physically and mentally. Please intercede for me St. Maximilian Kolbe. I can't do this on my own and really need your help. In return for your intercession I am going to help as many people as I possibly can, just as you did.

    Please save me from the perils of addiction!
