Novena to the Feast of Saint Maximilian Kolbe

O St. Maximilian Kolbe, faithful follower of St. Francis of Assisi, inflamed by the love of God, thou dedicated thy life to the practice of virtue and to works of charity.
Look kindly upon us who devoutly confide the following petitions to thy intercession:
(here our specific requests).
Having consecrated thyself to the Immaculate Virgin Mary, thou founded the Militia of the Immaculata (MI) Movement so that the Blessed Virgin might lead countless souls to holiness by inspiring them to do good, avoid evil, and spread the Kingdom of God.
Obtain for us, through her, the grace of drawing many souls to Christ.
 In thy close conformity to Our Divine Savior, thou reached such an intense degree of charity that thou offered thy life to save that of a fellow prisoner.
Implore God that we, inflamed by such ardent charity, may, through our faith and good works, witness Christ's Love for the world and thus merit to join thee in the blessed vision of God. Amen
