Words of the Saints to Ponder While Journeying Toward Bethlehem

St. Maximillian Kolbe ~ Rajmund Kolbe (Jan. 8, 1984 – Aug. 14, 1941)

Born: Poland

Priest, Martyr, Confessor of the Faith, Founder of the Militia Immaculatae, Apostle of Consecration to the Mother of God

Feast Day: Aug. 14th

“Niepokalanow is a home-like Nazareth. The Father is God the Father, the mother and mistress of the home is the Immaculata, the firstborn son and our brother is Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar. All the younger brothers try to imitate the elder Brother in love and honor towards God and the Immaculata, our common parents, and from the Immaculata, they try to love the divine elder Brother, the ideal of sanctity who deigned to come down from heaven to be incarnated in her and to live with us in the tabernacle.”

Prayer:

Dear Lord Jesus, how your mother loves You. She said, “Yes, let it be done to me.” Casting all earthly cares, concerns, and fears aside and putting all her faith and trust in God. I yearn to be able to cast aside all my cares, fears, and anxieties. I struggle to put all my trust in You. Lord, take my hand. Beloved Christmas Miracle, save me, I wait and long for your coming.

Music:

Alma Redemptoris Mater

Loving Mother of the Redeemer,
who remains the accessible Gateway of Heaven,
and Star of the Sea,
Give aid to a falling people
that strives to rise;
O Thou who begot thy holy Creator,
while all nature marveled,
Virgin before and after
receiving that “Ave” from the mouth of Gabriel,
have mercy on sinners.
