St. Maximilian Kolbe’s Marian Approach to EENS

“Therefore, he who does not wish to have Mary Immaculate for Mother will not have Christ for his brother, neither will God the Father send him the Son, nor will the Son descend into his soul, nor will the Holy Spirit with His own graces form the Mystical Body upon the model of Christ, because all of this happens in Mary Immaculate, full of grace, and solely in Mary.”
