The first time that God communicates his own name to us in Holy Scripture he says, "I AM WHO AM." When Our Lady spoke to little Saint Bernadette at Lourdes she told her "I AM THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION." Oh the depths of mystery and of beauty that lies in those twin utterances! Discussion of both of these haunting phrases is tightly woven into this seamless and well ordered explanation of the created universe and God's plan for the world.

Fr. Stehlin quotes extensively from St. John Eudes, Cornelius a Lapide, Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity, St. Maximilian Kolbe, and Lucia of Fatima. This treatise is one of the most succinct and clear explanations of the complete economy of salvation ever penned. The full role of the Immaculata is explored and refined, and its relevance to the world in our time is detailed in an easy to read and understand format. This is militant Catholic theology made simple for this Marian age.

What is the first thing you think of when you hear "St. Maximilian Kolbe"? If it's "holocaust" or "concentration camp" then you're a victim of the "St. Max Kolbe, Patron Saint of the Holocaust" crowd. 

This new book by Fr. Karl Stehlin (of the Eastern European District of the Society of Saint Pius X) is partly biographical but primarily focuses on St. Maximilian Kolbe's life - a long apostolate of spreading devotion to Our Immaculate Lady following the method of St. Louis de Montfort. Father debunks the typical myths of this so - called "Saint of Ecumenism" and shows his concern with combatting heresy, liberalism, modernism, Freemasonry and the need to convert heretics and Jews. One of the best features of this book is that Fr. Stehlin continually relates Kolbe's message with the Crisis in the Church, going so far, for example, as to point out how Lumen Gentium makes it nearly impossible for modern Catholics to truly understand the doctrine of this friar-knight of Our Lady.

Thoughts from Fr. Willie Doyle SJ:

"Abandon yourself completely into the hands of God, and take directly from Him every event of life, agreeable, or disagreeable.  Only then can God make you really holy".
