O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you, 
and especially the enemies of the Holy Church, 
and all those recommended to you: (names) 


Consecrate Yourself To Mary

Follow the ideals of St. Maximilian Kolbe's Knights of the Immaculata - "to lead every individual, with Mary, to the Sacred Heart of Jesus." 

Consecrate yourself to Jesus Christ through the Blessed Virgin Mary, the perfect model of discipleship, by becoming a member of the Militia Immaculata. 

The Militia Immaculata is a world-wide evangelization movement founded by St. Maximilian Kolbe in 1917. It encourages a total consecration to Mary Immaculate as a means of spiritual renewal for individuals and society. The Militia Immaculata is a Vatican approved public association. 

The Militia Immaculata uses prayer as the main weapon in the spiritual battle with evil. Members become willing instruments of Our Lady; who is the handmaid of the Lord, and the immaculate instrument of God; and work towards the conversion and sanctification of all souls. 

The goals of the Militia Immaculata are personal sanctification and the conversion of the world, and ultimately, the universal reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. 

Become a Knight of the Immaculata,
Consecrate Yourself To Mary!
