Does anyone know how significant/large/influential the Militia Immaculata is? Wikipedia wasn't very helpful on that point.

I don't know if their website mentions numbers, but here it is, again: http://www.consecration.com/default.aspx?id=8  If that doesn't help and you still want answers, you might want to try contacting them directly, perhaps.

I remember reading a number of years ago that while St. Kolbe was still alive the numbers in the M.I. were, I think, in the millions.  But...I *could* be remembering wrongly  Grin

i've got to get me one of these medals:

Quote
At various times and in various trials the most Blessed Virgin Mary has come to the aid of her children, giving them different ways of attaining salvation more easily, and freeing others from the yoke of satan. Now in this epoch of the Immaculate Conception the most Blessed Virgin has given mankind the "Miraculous Medal". Its heavenly origin has been proven by countless miracles of healing and particularly of conversion. The Immaculata herself in revealing it promised all who would wear it very many graces; and since conversion and sanctification are divine graces from God, the Miraculous Medal will be one of the best means for attaining these gifts. For this reason it constitutes a first-class weapon of the Militia Immaculatae; it is a "bullet" which a faithful Knight of the Immaculata aims at the enemy, i.e., evil, thereby saving persons caught in evil. "And above all the Miraculous Medal" (- original Program or Charter of the MI).

Would I get bonus graces by owning two or three medals? One would be ill-prepared for a real gunfight by walking around with a gun that has only one bullet, after all.

I don't think the effects stack. It's like eating the shroom in super mario brothers twice; it doesn't do anything the second time.

Also from wiki (Sergei Bulgakov):

In the words [of Fr. Sergius Bulgakov], when the Holy Spirit came to dwell in the Virgin Mary, she acquired "a dyadic life, human and divine; that is, She was completely deified, because in Her hypostatic being was manifest the living, creative revelation of the Holy Spirit" (Archpriest Sergei Bulgakov, The Unburnt Bush, 1927, p. 154). "She is a perfect manifestation of the Third Hypostasis" (Ibid., p. 175), "a creature, but also no longer a creature" (P. 19 1)...
So is this why Fr. Bulgakov's name generally makes people around here uneasy at best? Makes sense...

Actually, Mario Bros aside, I don't think there's any reason for a knight to have only one medal (bullet). As I recall, the idea would be to have many, so you're prepared when you meet someone new that you want to save.
