Knights of the Immaculata

Maximilian Kolbe called the members of the MI “knights”, not because they were of themselves especially outstanding, brave or powerful, but rather because they serve such an august Queen, to whom nothing less than the ideal of the knight is due; of the knight, who, forgetful of self, is ready to give himself completely for his ideal, for his Queen.

(Militia Immaculata)

"Modern times are dominated by Satin and will be more so in the future. The conflict with hell cannot be engaged by men, even the most clever. The Immaculata alone has from God the promise of victory over Satin. However, assumed into Heaven, the Mother of God now requires our cooperation. She seeks souls who will consecrate themselves entirely to her, who will become in her hands effective instruments for the defeat of Satin and the spreading of God's kingdom upon earth."

"Our dependence on Mary is greater than we can imagine. We receive all graces, absolutely all of them, from God through the Immaculate."

"He who loves the Immaculate will gain a sure victory in the interior combat."

- St. Maximilian Kolbe, founder of the MI.
