Small red coloured Cross

(Short Version)
Queen and Mother of the Church,
I renew my consecration to you for this day and forever
so that you might use me for the coming of the Kingdom of Jesus in the whole world. To this end, I offer you all my prayers, actions and sacrifices of this day.

Small red coloured Cross

(Full Version)
O Immaculata, Queen of Heaven and earth,
refuge of sinners and our most loving Mother,
God has willed to entrust the entire order of mercy to you.
I, a repentant sinner, cast myself at your feet,
humbly imploring you to take me with all that I am and have,
wholly to yourself as your possession and property.

Please make of me, of all my powers of soul and body,
of my whole life, death and eternity, whatever most pleases you.
If it pleases you, use all that I am and have without reserve,
wholly to accomplish what was said of you: “She will crush your head,”
and “You alone have destroyed all heresies in the whole world.”

Let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for introducing and increasing your glory to the maximum in all the many strayed and indifferent souls, and thus help extend as far as possible the blessed kingdom of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus. For wherever you enter you obtain the grace of conversion and growth in holiness since it is through your hands that all graces come to us from the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
V. Allow me to praise you, O Sacred Virgin
R. Give me strength against your enemies
Amen (By St Maximilian)

12th March: St Maximilian

Featured Saint: St Maximilian (274 – 295)

St Maximilian was born in Tebessa, Algeria. His father was a soldier of the Roman Army. At 21, St Maximilian was expected to also become a soldier, however, with his strong Christian beliefs, he refused. He was unwilling to carry out acts of violence contrary to his conscious. He was brought before a court and sentenced to beheading. St Maximilian was one of the first early “conscientious objectors”, all martyred for their strong Christian beliefs and refusing to do military service.

+In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen+

Divine Mercy PaintingShort Story: Jesus said, “Whoever is not with me, is against me.” (Luke 11:23a)

Thoughts: Perhaps one could add, there is no sitting on the fence, the decision to be a true follower, is ours alone”.

Private Reflection: Lord Jesus, may I spend today completely in your service; you are the source of my life.

PrayerWhen Working (by Jacob Boehme)
Give me, dear Lord, a pure heart and a wise mind,
that I may carry out my work according to your will.
Save me from all false desires,
from pride, greed, envy and anger,
and let me accept joyfully every task you set before me.

Let me seek to serve the poor
the sad and those unable to work.
Help me to discern honestly my own gifts
that I may do the things of which I am capable,
and happily and humbly leave the rest to others.

Above all, remind me constantly that I have nothing except what you give me,
and can do nothing except what you enable me to do.

St Maximilian:   Pray for Us
