"Patron of our difficult century." and "Prophet of the civilization of love."
(On First bead after Medal)
Remember, O Most Gracious Virgin Mary, never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored thys help, or sought your 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 he Word incarnate, dispise not my petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me Amen
(On each of the 14 beads, representing Kolbe's death on August 14)
Miraculous Medal Prayer (adapted)
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee, and for all those who not have recourse to thee, especially for the enemies of Holy Mother Church, and all those in most need of thy mercy
St Maximilian Kolbe, Pray for us
In the matter of converting and sanctifying souls, the only means is divine grace. This grace must be won through prayer. In this regard, the prayer which the Immaculata revealed in the miraculous medal apparition is of prime importanceSt Maximilian Kolbe
