“If anyone does not wish to have Mary Immaculate for his Mother, he will not have Christ for his Brother.”

“Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much. You can never love her more than Jesus did.”


If a brother or sister wants proof in the scripture of such statements, “All [KMMK] needs is the slightest provocation in order to do so” (Quote by G.K. Chesterton, “Orthodoxy”)

This is an image of the completion of a vision that Maximilian had as a young child, the offering of two crows by The Immaculata (Mary), one white and one red, for purity and martyrdom.  Kolbe as the youngster, chose both.
