The Marian Issue in the Church Today According to Peter Damian Fehlner, Part 5

According to the penetrating insights of Fr. Peter Damian Fehlner, the crisis in the Church today requires the faithful to live with a faith matching the Fiat of the Virgin, in the spirit of prayer and penance-reparation, that is, in a coredemptive spirit, and in...

Ave Verum Corpus: From Theology to Prayer and Back Again

At Christmas, the Son of God was born of the Virgin Mary. This mystery has an intimate connection with the mystery of the Eucharist, one celebrated in the hymn that begins Ave verum Corpus natum de Maria Virgine: “Hail, true Body, born of the Virgin Mary.” The hymn...

The Fundamentally Marian Imagination of J.R.R. Tolkein

“The Lord of the Rings is of course a fundamentally religious and Catholic work; unconsciously so at first, but consciously in the revision. That is why I have not put in, or have cut out, practically all references to anything like ‘religion’, to cults or practices,...

The Marian Issue in the Church Today According to Peter Damian Fehlner

By God’s design, Mary is united with her Son Jesus in the work of our salvation, not in a passive way, but by her active cooperation. This is why Mary is said to “occupy center stage” in our redemption—not substituting for or replacing Jesus, but never separated from...

Stabat Mater Dolorosa: A Hymn of Coredemption – Part 1

St. Maximilian Kolbe
“Do not write anything that could not be signed by the Virgin Mary”
This was the standard by which St. Maximilian Kolbe ensured quality control for his Marian Magazine and it is the standard we strive to maintain at Missio Immaculatae.

Get to know your Mother...

“When you start reading something on the Immaculate, do not forget that at that moment you come into contact with a living being, who loves you, who is pure, without stain… She will reveal herself to you through the phrases that you read and will convey to you thoughts, convictions, feelings that the author himself could not possibly even imagine.”
– St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe
