The Sorrowful Mysteries were prayed. The spiritual reading was taken from the Handbook Chapter 18 Titled: Order of the Praesidium Meeting Sections 3-8 page 107-110. The Allocutio was given by Father Hugh Gillespie about how we should make a special effort to pray the Rosary more often and with a little more reverence during October which is the month of the Rosary. Perhaps we could pause a little longer as each mystery is announced to allow ourselves more time for reflection. Since the Rosary is prayed at the beginning of each meeting and at special Legion events, it is how we water the soil of the heart which in turn shapes and strengthens the events that follow.
The Handbook assignment is Chapter 18, Section 9 page 110-113 and the Study assignment is to finish completely Chapter 13 in The Man Called Montfort by E.C. Bolger page 110-122.
There will be a special weekend retreat in Manorville at Our Lady of the Island Shrine titled: Our Lady of the Rosary Weekend Retreat with Father Hugh Gillespie starting Saturday October 11th and ending Monday, October 13th. All are invited.
The next meeting will include a Mass of Dedication for the altar and tabernacle on October 1, 2014 at 7PM in Bayshore. Guests are welcome!
