mention the requests you have).
the Militia Immaculata movement, which Maximilian founded, he spread

Grant, O Lord Jesus, that we too may
give ourselves entirely without reserve to the love and service of
our Heavenly Queen in order to better love and serve our fellowman
in imitation of your humble servant, Maximilian. Amen.
