St. Maximilian’s Secret: Mary Revealed Each Next Right Step – Aug 14 – Homily – Fr Matthias
On the Solemnity of St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe (Franciscan Missionary Priest, Founder of Militia of the Immaculata, and Martyr, Aug 14, 2019), Fr. Matthias explains the mysterious effect of Marian consecration in the remarkable life of St. Maximilian. Entrusting his salvation and sanctification to the Immaculate led to a lifelong cooperation under the influence of her mediation of grace, by which he was able to accomplish amazing and unforeseeable things for God and for souls.
The take-away from his example and teaching: consecrate yourself to Mary, live a life of union with her, and she will guide you, step by step, to a level of perfection and glory you cannot otherwise accomplish.
