Feast Day Fun: St Maximilian Kolbe

St Maximilian 2

St Maximilian was the Founder of the Militia of Mary Immaculate, spreading devotion and consecration to the Mother of God. Together with the Franciscans, St Maximilian published writings about our Blessed Mother. He was arrested by the Nazis and volunteered to take the place of a family man, when prisoners were selected to be killed and he comforted his fellow prisoners as they were dying.

Consider reading 33 Days to Morning Glory: A Do-It-Yourself Retreat In Preparation for Marian Consecration
prompting each family member to consecrate themselves to Mary.

St Max enthronement

I received this Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary Enthronement package from Celine of the Mater Ecclesiae College at CMN. Like Sacred Heart of Jesus Enthronement on Facebook and request your own family package while donating to support young consecrated women.

We are going to have an Enthronement Ceremony after we renew our vows to celebrate our 20th Anniversary, this Saturday with two of our favorite priests Fr Leslie and Fr Roger and our family!

There’s nothing like homemade cardboard armor to empower new Knights of the Immaculate! Check out how we made Joseph’s armor for his two medieval birthday parties!
