Every time that I attend one of these general assemblies that call members of the M.I. from all over the world to come together, I am once again reminded that the M.I. started by St. Maximilian and six other friars, has literally gone all over the world. From Poland to Japan, to Zambia to Canada, to Luxemburg to Germany to Italy, to France (Lourdes) to the Ivory Coast, to the United States and Canada, literally all over the world – with more than 4 million members consecrated; and our goal is the same today as it was when St. Maximilian began. We are to remember that “love alone creates” and that even though we speak many languages, we all are united in our desire to love – to bring the love of Christ to the world by promoting total consecration to the Immaculata.
