On October 16, 2020, in celebration of the 103rd anniversary of the founding of the Militia of the Immaculate (M.I.) the Hispano-American M.I. launched the first issue of its new magazine: El Caballero de la Inmaculada.
The Hispano-American M.I. decided to launch this online magazine at its meeting held on September 22, 2020. The magazine’s Editor-in Chief is Víctor Manuel VALVERDE VÁSQUEZ, President of the M.I. in Costa Rica. Graphic design is by Paola María VIQUEZ ROJAS and the Managing Editors are Olga PRIETO CRUZ and Raquel Isabel GÓMEZ JUÁREZ.
This first issue contains an introduction and opening comments from the Editor-in Chief, Víctor Manuel; from the Minister General of the Conventual Franciscans, Friar Carlos A. TROVARELLI; from the Delegate of the Minister General for the M.I., Friar Raffaele DI MURO; from the M.I. International President, Angela MORAIS and from the Vice-President, Miquel Bordas PRÓSZYNSKI. It also contains an extract of articles taken from the first issue of the Knight of the Immaculate Conception published in January of 1922.
This new magazine aims to fulfill St. Maximilian Maria KOLBE’s desire for the M.I. to win the whole world for Christ through the Immaculata. The Hispanic edition of this magazine hopes to bring together all of the Spanish-speaking Militia members around the world, on a monthly basis, through news, articles on spiritual and theological formation, original articles by St. Maximilian and other materials that ministers and lay people might want to share within its pages.
For the moment, the magazine will be published in electronic format in an attempt to reach the greatest number of people around the world, and it remains open to any further growth the Immaculata may grant to this wonderful project.
