Day 14 of 33 Days to Morning Glory

Kolbe's Prayer of Consecration

Today's reading goes over the actual wording of St. Maximilian's consecration prayer. (see below)

This closes out our second week of 33 Days to Morning Glory and the week focusing on St. Maximilian Kolbe and concludes with the goal of the Militia Immaculata: To lead all men and every individual through Mary to the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

I hope this helps some of our readers who have struggled with "too much emphasis on Mary." All we give Mary is through her to Jesus.

Militia Immaculata Consecration Prayer

(Composed by St. Maximilian Kolbe)
O Immaculata, Queen of Heaven and earth, refuge of sinners and our most loving Mother, God has willed to entrust the entire order of mercy to you. I, (name), a repentant sinner, cast myself at your feet, humbly imploring you to take me with all that I am and have, wholly to yourself as your possession and property. Please make of me, of all my powers of soul and body, of my whole life, death and eternity, whatever most pleases you.
If it pleases you, use all that I am and have without reserve, wholly to accomplish what was said of you: "She will crush your head," and "You alone have destroyed all heresies in the whole world. " Let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for introducing and increasing your glory to the maximum in all the many strayed and indifferent souls, and thus help extend as far as possible the blessed kingdom of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus. For wherever you enter you obtain the grace of conversion and growth in holiness, since it is through your hands that all graces come to us from the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
V. Allow me to praise you, O sacred Virgin
R. Give me strength against your enemies
