"The Legion of Mary, listed officially as a pious union in the Church may be defined as an association of Catholics, formed into an army for service in the spiritual warfare which the Church is perpetually waging against the evil forces in the world. The Legion aims to sanctify its members by a solid interior life of prayer which forms the mainspring of a very definite, active cooperation in spiritual work assigned by the Church. A Legionary must forget himself, his own comforts and desires and concentrate completely on what he can do for others with the power of the Holy Spirit and the ministering help of Mary..."
"Membership in the Legion is open to all Catholic men and women who lead edifying lives and are animated by the Legion spirit or at least desire to foster that spirit in themselves and are willing to fulfill the required duties..." Founder Frank Duff described the members of the Legion: "Not special souls or unusual types, but ordinary Catholics living the everyday life of the world. Its membership comprises the learned and the unlearned, laborers and leisured, the unemployed, widely differing classes, colors, races,including not a few whom the world would consider as primitive or depressed. In a word, it represents typical Catholicism."
Interested in becoming a Legionary and being part of Mary's army? Join us on Mondays at 6:30 p.m. in room 1.
For those interested in the Legion of Mary but cannot attend the Monday meetings, consider becoming an Auxiliary Member. Auxiliary members do not undertake the active apostolate of weekly meetings and weekly two hour assignment, but they assist the active Legionaries with the Tessera Prayers, which consist of all the prayers of the weekly meeting. Contact Lora Ruzicka (281-333-3891 ext. 323) for more information.
