Allow me to praise you, O most holy Virgin Mary, with my personal commitment and sacrifice. Allow me to live, work, suffer, be consumed and die for you, just for you.
Allow me to bring the whole world to you. Allow me to contribute to your ever-greater exaltation, to your greatest possible exaltation. Allow me to give you such glory that no one else has ever given up to now.
Allow others to surpass me in zeal for your exaltation and me to surpass them, so that by means of such noble rivalry, your glory may increase ever more profoundly, ever more rapidly, ever more intensely as He Who has exalted you so indescribably, above all other beings Himself desires. Amen.
- Saint Maximilian Mary Kolbe
