Knight of the Immaculata No. 17
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.
Knight of the Immaculata No. 16
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”.
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!”
Knight of the Immaculata No. 14
In this issue Fr. Karl Stehlin, the Director of the M.I. proposes to all Knights as a RESOLUTION for the upcoming year 2019.
To try every day, more and more, to give HER control over our words, actions, works, recreations etc. For example, if we always ask HER how to use our cell-phones and computers, and we use them according to HER will, then and only then, will we LIVE our consecration.
Knight of the Immaculata No. 13
As this issue is consecrated to the “greatest Saint of the latter times” (Pope Pius XI on St. Therese of the Child Jesus), let us consider some of the most important aspects of her devotion to Our Lady. There can be no better model for the Knight of the Immaculata who, first of all, knows that he is the little child of the best of all Mothers “who loves him so much” (Act of Consecration).
Knight of the Immaculata No. 12
“I live only for souls: that is my mission” — this sentence of St. Maximilian is motto of a new issue of “Knight of the Immaculata”. In this statement Saint Maximilian has expressed the purpose of his life and of his whole apostolic activity. His great love of God made him eager to work for the glory of God, that is to work for the salvation of souls.
In this new issue (No. 11) of the ‘Knight of the Immaculata’ we want to present you the deepest possible approach to the mystery of the Immaculata and the M.I.: In fact, Our Lady and her army in only a means to establish the Reign of the Sacred Heart of Christ the King.
May these pages help you to deepen your devotion to the Sacred Heart, especially in the month of June.
Knight of the Immaculata No. 10
With this 10th issue of the “Knight of the Immaculata” we give to you a brief summary about our dear M.I., with the purpose of discovering what our Heavenly Mother wants to say to us through these facts.
Knight of the Immaculata No. 9
This issue concerns the apparitions of Our Lady in Lourdes, because in 2018 year we will celebrate the 160th anniversary of these apparitions. The 11th of February, which is the annual memorial of the apparitions of the Mother of God in Lourdes, was celebrated by Saint Maximilian with great devotion. Before this feast the Saint, together with his brothers, were in the habit of saying a novena. The octave was also the time of bestowing wonderful graces by the Immaculata, as well as a time of special commitment to the fight for the Kingdom of God.
Knight of the Immaculata No. 8
On the 21st of November the Church celebrates the feast of the Presentation of Our Lady in the Temple, where she remained from the age of three until she was fifteen. This means that at the tender age of three she left her beloved parents, St. Anne and St. Joachim, to deliver herself to the service of God in the sanctuary. Tradition tells us that at this moment she uttered a vow of virginity because she wanted to be HIS, entirely and forever. We, her knights, should not only admire her total consecration to God, but also strive to imitate her as far as this is possible.
Knight of the Immaculata No. 7
The 13th of October 1917 marked the great miracle of the sun at Fatima. On the eve of the 17th of October 1917 in Rome the Militia Immaculatae was founded. At the same time the devil gathered his armies for a general mobilization during the October revolution in Russia and the 200th anniversary of Freemasonry in Rome. All these events were like a beginning of the great spiritual war between the “Woman clothed in the sun” and the “dragon”. Since then a war has been going on. It is the devil’s final battle against the “Woman and her Seed” which will end only on the day of doom!
Knight of the Immaculata No. 6
The apparitions of Our Lady in July and August 1917 were all centred on the means she wants us to use for the greatest possible number of conversions of poor sinners. The great secret of Fatima revealed to the children on the 13th of July begins with the terrific vision of Hell to make us understand the extreme gravity of the matter and give us an efficacious motivation to employ all possible means to work for the conversion and salvation of souls — and all souls are in imminent danger of getting lost forever in the fires of Hell.

We must be very much convinced that, during this exceptional year 2017, Our Lady has kept aside very special graces and favours for the whole Church and for all those who are really concerned with her messages and determined to seriously fulfill her requests. We must therefore pay special attention NOT to waste the precious time given to us. Every day, this year, we must deepen our devotion towards HER Immaculate Heart, the sanctuary where we abundantly receive all the graces of conversion.

Knight of the Immaculata No. 4
She standing beneath the Cross, has received from her Crucified Son all graces of conversion and the sanctification of all people. However, by the will of God, these graces can be “set free” and flow into souls only if she finds instruments or channels to pass these graces from her Immaculate Heart into those souls. Help me to console your Immaculate and Sorrowful Heart.
Knight of the Immaculata No. 3
In the present issue we want to attract your attention to the means, the “weapons” of the Knight. Saint Maximilian Kolbe invites us to “use all honest means” to make Our Lady known and loved, to convert the souls so that they may recognize their heavenly mother and through her their Heavenly Father.
Knight of the Immaculata No. 2
St. Maximilian’s Marian spirituality included the great tradition of honouring Our Lady under her title of the Immaculate Conception (the feast on the 8th of December); and the apparitions of Our Lady in the previous century: in 1830 to St. Catherine Labouré (the Miraculous Medal — the feast on the 27th of November), and in 1858 to St. Bernadette at Lourdes.
