A vocation is an immense grace, and because all graces come from the Sacred Heart only through her immaculate hands, the grace of God’s call comes the same way. Generally a young man becomes aware of being called according to the measure of his devotion and love of her. How many understood this touch of God’s finger in their soul meditating on Our Lady’s words in Fatima: “God wants to use you to make me known and loved!” To understand the call from God, one must understand deeply the mysteries of our faith and specially the immense grandeur of the Eternal King who deigns to call even the poorest sinners into his service. Only the Immaculata, “seat of wisdom”, will open their eyes and hearts and dispose them to become more fascinated by the eternal light of God than by the brilliance of the false pleasures of the world.
The Blessed Virgin Mary firstly manifested her prudence by devoting herself to God’s service at an early age, when she was presented by her holy parents in the temple of God, and where she remained occupied in the meditation of His law, and in the celebration of His divine perfections.
The blessed Virgin, in choosing “the better part,” manifested her singular prudence, as this is a virtue which guides us in the choice of our objectives, and in the selection of the means to attain them.

We offer a new flyer “Virgin of Virgins”. Mary — this perfect masterpiece of God — is a woman. Therefore, of all the creatures that He made, women, and especially virgins, have a special relationship to her. This, above all else, is the great duty of woman: to be an image, a living icon of the Immaculata. That is why it is so necessary for a woman, a virgin, to follow her prototype. Mary gives the example of the virginal life and vocation, and the perfection of feminine nature comes about through conformity to her: to the extent that a woman reflects HER in her life, she becomes precious, strong, pure and preternaturally beautiful.
The topic of this issue of “Knight of the Immaculata” is the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. At Fatima Our Lady revealed to the world her Immaculate Heart and presented the devotion to her Immaculate Heart as the remedy for all evils in our times. She also revealed what this devotion mainly consists of and announced that she would come again to give detailed precisions of her request: “I will come and ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted”.

VOCATIONS THROUGH THE IMMACULATA
Dear Knights of the Immaculata!
According to the will of Our Lord Jesus Christ, who alone is able to accomplish on earth the work of redemption, to continue to give God all glory and to shed the Blood of Christ into souls? The priest.
We publish a new issue of “Knight of the Immaculata”. As the title of this issue shows, it is simply to follow her order: “Whatsoever He shall say to you, do ye!” This word is only an echo of the voice of the Heavenly Father saying: “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear him!” In fact, apart from God the Father, nobody in the world is able to repeat these words, except Mary, the Mother of Our Saviour: “This is my beloved Son, in whom I have found all my joy and life and pleasure. Hear him!”
