The Militia of the Immaculate, an Association of Pontifical Right, founded by St. Maximilian Kolbe in 1917 in Rome, and now present throughout the world, has held a very important event: an Extraordinary Elective Assembly, from October 11-16, 2010, at the College of the Seraphicum in Rome, with appointed delegates from a variety of countries participating.

The week preceding the elections, was a time of intense work on defining the major directions which the Association wants to take upon itself in the next six years, deepening the roots of the principal desire of St. Maximilian Kolbe: consecration to the Immaculate.

In an atmosphere of tranquility and joy, the participants brought their diverse experiences, sharing their own cultural and spiritual perspective, on the one hand, and on the other, coming to appreciate a unity around a single idea: bringing all people to Christ, through the Immaculate.

On October 16, 2010, at the conclusion of the week, the President of the Association of the Militia of the Immaculate, Raffaella Aguzzoni, a Father Kolbe Missionary of the Immaculate, was elected, along with her Council, made up of members from various countries: Friar Patrick Greenough (USA), Friar François Godefert (France), Friar Sebastian Quaglio (Brazil), Friar Piotr Cuber (Poland), and Friar Louis Mary Schmid (Australia).

To her, her Council, and to the whole Association, we wish them good work, and good mission, in a Marian and Kolbean missionary spirit.

Fra François Godefert
