Knights of St. Michael for Mary’s Ark of Salvation
(Through the Pilgrimage of the Two Hearts)

The Knights of St. Michael for Mary’s Ark of Salvation is a spiritual movement composed of men and women who dedicate their lives to works of charity and mercy in the pursuit of holiness as a way of life. Under the patronage of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and their commander St. Michael the Archangel, members strive for holiness so they can model their lives in Christian perfection founded on the Beatitudes.

This spiritual movement promotes the attainment of holiness through a life of virtues based on the salutations of the nine choirs of angels found in the Chaplet of St. Michael. The Knights of St. Michael is open to anyone who desires to live a deeper spiritual life, is loyal and faithful to the Teachings of the Catholic Faith and actively supports our Church leaders in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“For who is like God?” – St. Michael the Archangel

The spiritual movement comprises of many faithful members of the Catholic community associated with the St. Michael Center for the Blessed Virgin Mary, a Catholic lay apostolate based in Honolulu Hawaii, along with other representative chapters throughout the country. The apostolate since 1994 has actively promoted the Catholic Faith through various evangelization efforts including broadcasting, direct mail, publishing, prayer and parish events, conferences and teaching seminars. Throughout the 10 years of work, and after much prayer and discernment, the most faithful and active members of the St Michael Center formed the initial core group of the Knights of St. Michael. Members must have the basic understanding of the Catholic faith and their fervent practice of it, forms a spirituality that is deeply rooted in a life of holiness. This practice of holiness is the greatest fruit of all virtues because it is the source of all good works and leads to higher forms of contemplation such as a deeper devotional life. To live a holy life and to receive spiritual formation are core requirements of those who are called to the spiritual army of St Michael. All Catholics are invited and encouraged to become a member of this spiritual movement so they can become holy witnesses to the Truths of the Catholic Faith. They shall bring the Gospel to their own communities and become the light of the world amidst a world filled with untruths, errors and moral disorder.

All members of the Knights of St. Michael movement honors Mary with the title “Mary’s Ark of Salvation”. This title is inspired by the famous vision of St. John Bosco, when in 1862, he saw a great flagship representing the Catholic Church with the Holy Father at the helm. Besieged by enemy fire and in the midst of a great sea battle, victory was obtained when the ship anchored onto two great pillars on the ocean: on top of the left pillar, was the Holy Eucharist and on the other pillar, the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our Lady also frequently mentions “Mary’s Ark of Salvation” in the on-going apparitions in Naju Korea where she has delivered profound and important messages of urgency to the Church and to the world concerning the present world crisis.

The Knights of St. Michael, therefore, seek to win souls for God by first, living a life of holiness and second, by being on board Mary’s Ark of Salvation anchoring onto the great pillars of the Catholic Faith: the Holy Eucharist and devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Bearing the shield and sword of St. Michael, the Knights are soldiers whose battle cry is to fight evil with holiness and to become the Army of Light, through devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, encouraging all Catholic to embrace the Cross of Jesus Christ. The spiritual movement is closely associated, in their spiritual formation, with the lay community of Pilgrimage of the Two Hearts, a Catholic lay association of the Missionaries of Love and Peace of the Most Blessed Trinity headquartered in the Archdiocese of Melbourne Australia.

“Put on the armor of God”

As a Knight of St. Michael, one strives to understand and live a life of holiness based on the nine salutations of the choir of angels. The salutations call upon each Knight to progress toward a higher nature of Christian perfection by embracing many important holy virtues and rejecting evil and sin. Each choir of angels helps us attain that degree of perfection, as if they were leading us up a ladder toward Heaven. The practice of this Holy virtues echoes the nine salutations, honoring the nine choirs of angels. Thus, to become a Knight of Saint Michael is to follow the ancient battle cry. “Put on the Armor of God” (Ephesians 6:10-17)

A Great Knight of God
St. George Patron of England, Portugal & Soldiers George was a soldier under the Roman Emperor Diocletian. In 298, when the emperor required all soldiers to worship Roman gods, George left the army. Later, Diocletian outlawed Christianity, and George confronted the emperor to plead for his fellow Christians. For his defiance, George was brutally tortured and finally beheaded

`We are all called to be Knights of St. Michael!

William Huckestein,
San Diego, CA

"Being a Knight of St Michael is best defined by the words: "Be Not Afraid." By echoing the Holy Father's call to be not afraid, we proclaim the Gospel by living It in an ever secular world. Holiness is what is needed today to save souls ..... "

Dennis Aguirre,
Daly City, CA

"A Knight of St Michael lives a life of holiness and it is the reason for our existence in this world, for this is the pefect witnessing of Christ to others."

Loretta Crowder
Honolulu, HI

I look to our Holy father Pope John Paul II who said, "Be Not Afraid". Holiness originates with God. As Christians, we are called to live a holy life - a life like God wants us to live. I am not afraid to put on the armor of St Michael, a nd hold up the sword and shield of God's holy and protective light.

Mary Klipp,
St Louis MO

"To be a great Knight of St Michael we rely on holiness to have the courage to stand firm in our Catholic faith in the midst of opposition and complacency, and humbly admitting that it is not our strength that keeps us firm, but Jesus’ strength."

Robert Matsumoto
Honolulu, HI

"To be a St. Michael knight, one must love God above else, to obey his commandments and to do His good works for the love of Him."


The liturgy is a school of holiness, because it helps to transform life into a prayer, both private as well as communal.... The Eucharist gives a real face to Christian holiness and is where the source of holiness and the New Evangelization are. In the life and mystery of the humble Capuchin St Pio (Padre Pio) everything speaks of the connection that exists between the liturgy and especially the sacraments of the Eucharist and penance and holiness.....the secret of St. Pio's total adherence to Christ was the daily celebration of the Eucharist and the constant ministry of the confessional. - Cardinal Sodano

“Jesus’ Baptism”

Why did Jesus, the sinless one sent from the Father in heaven, submit himself to John’s baptism? John preached a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins (Luke 3:3). In this humble submission we see a foreshadowing of the “baptism” of Jesus bloody death upon the cross. Jesus’ baptism is the acceptance and the beginning of his mission as God’s suffering Servant (Isaiah 52:13-15; 53:1-12). He allowed himself to be numbered among sinners. Jesus submitted himself entirely to his Father’s will. Out of love he consented to this baptism of death for the remission of our sins. Do you know the joy of trust and submission to God?
