The Chaplet of St. Maximillian Kolbe

Chaplet of Saint Maximillian

The Chaplet of St. Maximillian Kolbe consists of 14 beads to celebrate his martyr's death on the 14th of August. He considered the Miraculous Medal to be the "bullet" against the enemy of our souls, and considered wearing it to be mandatory in prayer for the conversion of souls.

Saint Max added to the Miraculous Medal Prayer the following:

"O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for those who have recourse to thee, and those who have no recourse, especially the enemies of the Church, and those whom we recommend to thee."

On each of the 14 beads repeat this prayer, adding "St. Maximillian, Pray for Us," and adding the intention for which you pray.

On the pendant bead above the Crucifix, pray the Memorarae:

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto Thee, O virgin of virgins, my Mother. To Thee I come, before Thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate! Despise not my petitions, but in Thy mercy, hear and answer us. Amen.
