Your Love of God

Columban Daily Prayer
August 14, 2023

O St. Maximilian Kolbe,
inflamed by the love of God
you dedicated your life to the practice of virtue
and to works of the apostolate.
Look down with favor upon us
who devoutly confide in your intercession.
Having consecrated yourself
to the Immaculate Virgin Mary,
you inspired countless souls to a holy life
and various forms of leadership
in order to do good for others
and to spread the kingdom of God.
Obtain for us grace through our lives and labors
to draw many souls to Christ.
In your close conformity to our Divine Savior
you reached such an intense degree of love
that you offered your life to save a fellow prisoner.
Implore God that we, inflamed by such ardent charity,
may through our living faith and our apostolic works
witness Christ to others, and thus merit to join you
in the blessed vision of God.
