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
