St. Maximilian Kolbe and Vigil of the Assumption

Today is the memorial of St. Maximilian Kolbe, founder of the Militia Imaculata and a martyr at a concentration camp during WWII. He's relatively new so those of you who pray the office may not have the propers for the feast. Here's the collect:

Gracious God, you filled your priest and martyr, Saint Maximilian Kolbe, with zeal for souls and love for his neighbor. Through the prayer of this devoted servant of Mary Immaculate, grant that in our efforts to serve others for your glory we too may become like Christ your Son, who loved his own in the world even to the end, and now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Also, don't forget tomorrow is a Holy Day.
