20th Anniversary of the Militia Immaculata

We offer a new issue of the “Knight of the Immaculata”.

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.

You can download from the M.I. Library one or all of the previous issues of the Knight magazine:

About the magazine

The main instrument for Saint Maximilian Kolbe to contact the Knights of the Immaculata was his monthly newsletter “Rycerz Niepokalanej”— "The Knight of the Immaculata" which he started to print in 1922 with 5,000 copies. In 1939 the Polish edition reached a readership of one million. Since 2010 in Poland some zealous knights have been publishing a similar newsletter for all Polish Knights of the CatholicTradition. In 2015 it was joined by a beautiful little brother in the German language. We want to follow their example and present you with the issue in English of "The Knight of the Immaculata".

The goal of such a newsletter is to inform all Knights about the apostolate and life of the Militia Immaculatæ worldwide, to present them with some spiritual texts, to offer them some tools for the apostolic work and for their own perseverance and growth in zeal (tools in the form of flyers, booklets, testimonies of the miraculous effects of the M.I. prayer crusade, other testimonies of Knights etc.).

This newsletter is not only for the Knights themselves, but also for them to use as a means to attract souls of good will, to lead them to become interested in the M.I., so that they may join the swelling army of Our Lady. So don’t hesitate to pass it on to your friends and relatives.
