Mary's Boot Camp:
A Five-Week Course on
Mary, Queen of Militants
"The Blessed Virgin Mary is more than just the perfect militant -
she is the Queen of Militants. It is Mary who sends all militants into combat; it is she who helps them in the struggle, and it is she who gives them the victory." 
- Fr. Emil Neubert, S., S.T.D.

These words, written 72 years ago by Father Emil Neubert in his book,  Queen of Militants , remain as true today as they were in 1947 when the world was reeling after the Second World War. Facing many of the same conflicts in our world today, from economic strife to political infighting and the secularization of our culture and Church, Christians are hungering for strong and decisive leadership in the war against evil. In this five-week course, we reveal the empowering secrets hidden in this obscure title and explain why Mary is the perfect model for today’s soldier of Christ - and our key to victory. 

In this course, you will learn:

What is a militant and why are you called to be one?

Why is Mary the Queen of militants?

How does Mary form you as a soldier in her army?

What are the means by which you can be victorious in this life and the next?

Each week participants have a homework assignment. Instruction will include a once-a-week online meeting lasting one hour. It will consist of an opening prayer, review and discussion of the homework assignment, a lecture, and 15 minutes for Q&A. 

Online sessions for this 5-week course will take place Tuesday evenings at 8:00 PM EST, beginning on October 8th and ending on November 5th.

Please register asap to receive your book in time to complete your homework for the first class! You will receive your first assignment by September 8th (Mary's birthday!)
