Franciscan Focus

Just a simple blog of a Secular Franciscan trying to live with a Franciscan focus.

Timely technological prayer 

A fellow Franciscan, Sr. Mary Kansier, MS, composed this wonderfully powerful -- and concise! -- prayer in relation to the proper use of technology. I'm happy to share it here, and hope it spreads 'round the Innertoobz! With proper citation for Sr. Mary (who retains all copyrights), of course!

Prayer to St. Maximilan Kolbe on the Use of Technology
by Sr. Mary Kansier, MS

Heavenly Father, Your loving servant Maximilian Kolbe spent his life in service to others, using technology to spread the good news of Jesus Christ.

You crowned his life with the grace to give his life for another, in imitation of Jesus who said, "There is no greater love than to lay down your life for a friend."

Through the intercession of St. Maximilian, may we always use technology for Your Glory and to draw others close to You and Your Blessed Mother Mary.

St. Maximilian Kolbe, pray for us. Amen.

An excellent prayer! I'll have to save it where I can use it whenever I want. Thank you, Sr. Mary.
