The Director of the Militia Immaculatae, Fr. Karl Stehlin established a circle M.I. 2 — Mission for Russia (a second degree of the Militia Immaculatae), bringing together all Knights to pray for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, according to the requests of Our Lady at Fatima and in Tuy.
Every day these Knights would offer a prayer for the consecration of Russia:
‘Oh Immaculata, I ask you that, in union with all the bishops of the world, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to your Immaculate Heart’.
The goal of M.I. 2 — Mission for Russia, is to provide supernatural and natural help for the works being undertaken for the fulfillment of the request of Our Lady of Fatima to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart.
Here are the statutes of M.I. 2 — Mission for Russia
Dear Knight, if you want to join M.I. 2 — Mission for Russia, please email your intention of joining (full name, country of residence, e-mail address, and a promise to pray every day for the intention of the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary), to:
On 13 July 1917, Our Lady of Fatima asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart. In Tuy (13 June 1929) Our Lady told Sr. Lucia: “The moment has come when God asks the Holy Father to consecrate Russia in union with all the bishops of the world to my Immaculate Heart, promising to save it by this means.”
Saint Maximilian Kolbe wanted to establish an apostolate in Russia. He wanted to publish the magazine “Knight of the Immaculata” in Russian. In 1931 he wrote: “I believe that her banner will be hoisted up even over the Kremlin, and so on. In a word, she shall be truly Queen of every heart and in every heart will introduce divine love, the love of the Heart of Jesus. Then the purpose of the M.I. will have been achieved.”
According to the founder of the Militia Immaculatae, St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe, the movement covers all opportunities for our collaboration in the work of salvation: it invites those who want to serve the Immaculata individually (M.I. 1), but also foresees the common apostolate in groups, circles, or associations of reaching a better and wider apostolic result (M.I. 2).
