The Militia Immaculata, or "Army of the Immaculate," (also called the Knights of the Immaculata in the USA[1] [2]) is a worldwide Catholic evangelization movement founded by St. Maximilian Kolbe in 1917 in response to protests against the Pope by Freemasons in Rome[3] [4]. The MI, as it is also known, is open to all Catholics and encourages intercession to the Virgin Mary for the conversion of sinners. Joining the MI involves making a vow of consecration to Mary. Members wear the Miraculous Medal as an outward sign of their consecration.

The purpose of the Knights is contained in these words: to do all you can for the conversion of sinners, heretics, schismatics and so on, above all the Masons, and for the sanctification of all persons under the sponsorship of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Immaculate Mediatrix.

—Fr. Maximilian Kolbe, 1938[2]
