The Sorrowful Mysteries were prayed.
The Spiritual Reading was taken from the Handbook page 182-184, Chapter 31 titled: Extension and Recruiting, part 3.
The Allocutio was given by Father Hugh Gillespie calling to mind how the Catena is prayed at the very heart of the meeting. This prayer provides much reflection. Our Lady comes to us just as she visited her cousin, Elizabeth. Her greeting was and still is animated by Christ himself. As Legionaries, we must visit with the same spirit as Our Lady. Our visits to the retired priests and religious require persistence and we know that God has not ceased to work in these older lives. Let us continue to visit with the same spirit of animation as that of Our Lady.
The Handbook assignment is Chapter 32 titled: Objections Which May Be Anticipated page 184-186. The Study assignment is from Miracles on Tap by Frank Duff chapter 20 page 180-194.
