CHAPLET OF ST. MAXIMILIAN KOLBE

The recitation of this chaplet is intended to seek the powerful intercession of this Martyr of Charity who Pope John Paul II has referred to as the "Patron of our Difficult Century" and the "Prophet of the Civilization of Love." St. Maximilian himself had noted that those in heaven, unrestricted by earthly cares or concerns, can indeed work "with both hands" for the special needs of those who call upon them for help.

Said on the beads of St. Maximilian, consisting of the medal depicting St. Maximilian Kolbe and fifteen beads. The Kolbe chaplet is said by reciting the Memorare on the first bead after the medal. This prayer is a reminder of the filial love and unwavering trust St. Maximilian had for Our Lady. On the second set of fourteen beads, representing Kolbe's death on August 14, the Miraculous Medal Prayer adapted by St. Maximilian is recited. Kolbe always encouraged this prayer for the conversion and sanctification of others, beginning with oneself. After each prayer, directly invoke St. Maximilian's intercession keeping in mind the particular intention or person you wish to remember.

Memorare

Remember, O Most Gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to Thy protection, implored Thy help, or sought Thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to Thee, O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother, before Thee I come, before Thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in Thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.

Miraculous Medal Prayer (adapted)

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee, and for all those who do no have recourse to Thee, especially for the enemies of Holy Mother Church, and all those in most need of Thy mercy.

Invocation

St. Maximilian Kolbe, pray for us!
