Day 30 of 33 Days to Morning Glory

Review and Synthesis
Mary appeared to St Maximilian Kolbe when he was 12 yrs old at the parish church in Pabianice, Poland and offered him the white crown of chastity and the red crown of martyrdom - he chose both crowns
St. Maximilian Kolbe

The three words to contemplate for St. Maximilian Kolbe are:
Mystery, Militia and Love

Mystery-we think about the Holy Spirit being the UNcreated Immaculate Conception and Mary the created Immaculate Conception

Militia- St. Maximilian didn't want to just be one person consecrated to Mary, he wanted an army or militia of many to be in her service

Love-We will fall more and more in love with Mary when we experience her tender maternal care for us as we consecrate and give ourselves to her.
