Militia Immaculata - Columbus, Ohio Village

 

Thank you for your interest and the opportunity to share this very important, universal opportunity in the “New Evangelization” for the Catholic Faith. We are fortunate to have such a great community in Columbus, Ohio and we take seriously the call of the Church to share in the life of Jesus and do our part to aid the coming of His Kingdom.

The Militia of the Immaculata (MI) is a worldwide evangelization movement founded by St. Maximilian Kolbe in 1917 that encourages total consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary as a means of spiritual renewal for individuals and society.Consecration offers us an opportunity to renew our broken vows of Baptism to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.As we renew our promises, we entrust ourselves into her care, asking her to assist us in our pressing necessity.The goal of which is to become the saints that Jesus intended us to be, even in our troubled times.

The MI movement is open to all Catholics. It employs prayer as the main weapon in the spiritual battle with evil.MI's also immerse themselves in apostolic initiatives throughout society, either individually or in groups, to deepen the knowledge of the Gospel and our Catholic Faith in themselves and in others.

Marian consecration is a formal act of self-giving that does not stop at Mary, but is Christ-directed. It is really consecration to Jesus. The MI's mission is "To Lead Every Individual With Mary to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus."

By joining the MI, members become willing instruments of Our Lady, the woman foreshadowed in Genesis 3:15. She leads them to personal sanctification, the conversion of Church opponents and ultimately the universal reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Unlike many religious or fraternal groups, the MI is structured on a local basis.The MI in Columbus, Ohio believes in the power of personal prayer and an “on your honor”system, so there are no required meetings or organizational needs. We may invite you to join us from time-to-time, but your attendance is purely optional.

The MI is made up of villages and the individuals in them, that work together to spread the message about Consecration to Jesus through Mary, using the Miraculous Medal as our method of evangelizing.
