Director’s Letter No. 17

We must not fall asleep, especially not now!

Dear Knights of the Immaculata!
Events are precipitating. From all sides the adversary seems to launch the general attack. Whoever does not know in these times through whom certain victory will come, is lost.

On the 16th of October 2021 is again the anniversary of the founding of the M.I. On this day we want to renew our consecration to Mary as instruments in her immaculate hands, not only to gain a plenary indulgence, but above all to ask the Immaculata to widen our hearts and fill them with her own zeal for the salvation of souls, her beloved children.


“Knight of the Immaculata” No. 26

This issue of Knight of the Immaculata reaches you, dear Knights, in October, the month of the Rosary. In this year, October is special, because we celebrate the 450th Anniversary of one of the famous victories of the Rosary: the Lepanto battle. Please read very carefully the text in this issue of Knight — pages 9–18.
You will learn the power of the Rosary. Father Maximilian and many other saints have written about how great a weapon it is. Many of us have become convinced of the power of the Rosary.
We warmly encourage you to pray the Rosary every day. If you cannot pray the whole Rosary or the five decades, please pray at least one decade, but with faith in Mary’s help and with great fervour, praising her glory. This is very important!

“Knight of the Immaculata” No. 25

In times of war (and we are in a terrible specific war) it is very difficult to love our neighbours, especially our enemies. However, it is the new commandment of Our Lord, the greatest after the love of God, and if we do not fulfil it, we cannot go to Heaven.

Exactly 80 years ago Father Maximilian Kolbe offered his life for a co-prisoner condemned to death in the hunger bunker of Auschwitz. We want to recall this unique event in this present issue of the “Knight”. The heroic example of our holy founder motivates us to walk in his footsteps and learn from him true love.

The fruits of Knights, who truly love, become more and more visible, and we want also to bring to your attention some of the miracles of conversion Our Lady works in our days with our little army, the Militia Immaculatae of Traditional Observance.

Read carefully – and you will know how to react to the aggressive attitude of all kinds of enemies (Free-masons, communists, charismatics, modernists, LGBT etc.).

“Knight of the Immaculata” No. 24

Eighty years ago, on the 14th of August 1941, Fr. Maximilian Kolbe was executed. He was murdered in the hunger bunker in Auschwitz, where he had been incarcerated, most probably at the end of July, with 9 other condemned men. He died as a victim of love for two reasons: the first is well known — he asked to replace a fellow prisoner who was the father of a family, and offered himself to suffer and die for him. The second reason — he didn’t want the other prisoners to die miserably and in despair risking, after a bitter death on earth, to be condemned to eternal death in hell: he wanted to share their sufferings and bring them the consolations of Our Lord and Our Lady.

We are all aware, that extraordinary times have arrived. The aim of the current undertakings in the world is to destroy the Church and Christian civilization in order to build on their ruins a New World Order without God and His Law. But this is neither new nor extraordinary, because from the very beginning this was always the ambition of the devil.
Saint Maximilian equally reflected often about such exceptional times. Already since 1938 he foresaw the upcoming Second World War, and he wanted to prepare the Knights for such times of heavy trials.

Letter No. 16 of Fr. Director

Dear Knights of the Immaculata,
Our little jubilee of 20 years of the Militia of the Immaculata of Traditional Observance is coming to an end. As we look back on these years, we must first thank God for having allowed this small army of Our Lady to spread to 62 countries on the 5 continents.

“Knight of the Immaculata” No. 22

In these troubled times we should never forget that we are entirely in the hands of Divine Providence. In this newest issue of the “Knight of the Immaculata” we want to introduce you to the rather unknown title of “Our Lady of Divine Providence”. She teaches us to live in the spiritual embrace of the loving Providence of the Most Holy Trinity, especially in such dangerous times.

This issue shows you also that Our Lady doesn’t “sleep” in spite of the many restrictions and lockdowns: She never allows anybody to be “locked down”!

Pray the Rosary every day, especially in this blessed month of the Most Holy Rosary!

Knight of the Immaculata No. 21

This new issue of the Knight of the Immaculata as the expression of my deep conviction that when times get worse,  the greater will be the consolation coming from the immense love of Our Heavenly Mother who never abandons her children.
The M.I. is nothing but so to say the ‘extension’ of her presence amongst the poor children of Eve.
More than ever before all her Knights are requested to allow HER to shine forth when darkness grows. In these times the distribution of the Miraculous Medal or flyers about HER are much more efficacious than in any other times.
More than ever before we can help HER to save many souls.

Flyer “The Knock Apparition”

On the 21st of August 1879 Mary McLoughlin passed the church accompanied by Mary Byrne who noticed that the ‘statues’ were moving. Exclaiming it was the Blessed Virgin she ran to tell others. Soon some twenty people had gathered.
Knock has not escaped the influence of modernism. It has ugly buildings and uninspiring ceremonies. But traditional devotions are making a comeback. The ceremonies and conferences organised by the Society of St. Pius X in September 2019 illustrate this. We can also make individual or group pilgrimages which might include the Way of the Cross, saying Rosaries while circling the old church and various other prayers.


Knight of the Immaculata No. 20

This year we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the M.I. Traditional Observance. In Warsaw on the first Saturday of May 2000 (May 6th), Fr. Karl Stehlin enrolled the first 50 Knights into the Militia Immaculatæ, renewed according to the principles of St. Maximilian. The first Knights received the “dyplomik” (little diploma), a copy of the one written and signed by St. Maximilian himself.
