Fr. Emil Neubert, Marianist

Fr. Emil Neubert was, arguably, the most extraordinary Marian writer of the twentieth century.  St. Maximilian Kolbe was so impressed with one of his books that he struck up a friendship with him.  Many people, however, have not heard of him.  Here is a good article about him.  Fortunately, Fr. Neubert also wrote an autobiography, which you can get here!  I have dedicated a Pinterest board to him where you can also get some of his previously untranslated works.  I have three more of his works in preparation.  He used to write about the Blessed Virgin for three hours a day, and he wrote books for every state of life.  His autobiography is very inspiring.  It is to be hoped that he will be canonized.

St. Maximilian Kolbe (2/26)

“God permits that you go through a sense of being disheartened, filled with doubts and lonesomeness.  But this is always for His glory and that of His Immaculate Mother.  However, if you trust not in yourself in anything, placing instead all your confidence in our Immaculate Mother, you will always triumph, even though all of hell, the flesh, and the devil assailed you.”

St. Maximilian Kolbe (2/25)

“When at times I am tempted to worry, I immediately say to myself: ‘Silly one, why do you worry?  Is this your work?  If all belongs to the Immaculate, will she not attend to it?  Then let Her lead you!'”
