What We Do
“For Her let us live, toil, suffer, and long to die.” – St. Maximilian
By virtue of our vow of unlimited and total consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary, it is our mission and duty to give Mary to souls, to cause them to discover and know Her, to make all hearts love Her, using every means in order that She may bring souls to Jesus and transform them into other Christs “in the swiftest, surest, most beautiful way.” (St. Maximilian)
Academy of the Immaculate
The Academy of the Immaculate, founded in 1992, is inspired by and based on a project of St. Maximilian M. Kolbe (never realized by the Saint because of his death by martyrdom at the age of 47, August 14, 1941). Among its goals the Academy seeks to promote at every level the study of the Mystery of the Immaculate Conception and the universal maternal mediation of the Virgin Mother of God, and to sponsor publication and dissemination of the fruits of this research in every way possible.
Taking advantage of an FCC window for free Non-Commercial Educational FM Broadcast licenses, we applied for six stations. We plan on using the free Satellite stream from EWTN until we have more of our own programming available.
AirMaria.com was started in 2006 by the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate in the United States. The purpose of AirMaria.com is to continue in the tradition of St. Maximilian and use the most modern means of communication to promote the welfare of souls by preaching the faith of the Church and making Our Lady known and loved.
