Weekly Meeting May 18, 2016

During the 118th meeting of the Regina Cordium praesidium which was held at The Montfort Spiritual Center of Bay Shore, NY; The Sorrowful Mysteries were prayed.  The Spiritual reading was taken from the Handbook page 256-257, chapter 37 titled:  Suggestions As to Works parts 13 and 14.  The Allocutio was read by Terri from Inside The Legion of Mary by Francis J. Peffley page 116-117  titled:  Crowd Contact.  This reading tells us that the most important way to evangelize is by direct contact with each person.  Each person represents a priceless soul and each soul is worth nothing less than the Blood of Christ!  Because of this, we need to constantly focus on individuals.  We need to be unassuming and deferential which are the standard qualities of any good legionary on any assignment.  We need to remember how Our Blessed Mother would be; filled with humility and respect.  She would be seeking individual souls, anguishing over their needs and yearning to help them to heaven.  Let us truly try to be Our Blessed Mother’s hands and heart as we participate in her care for souls and make up her “mystical body” – her spiritual presence on earth in the form of The Legion of Mary.  The handbook assignment is Chapter 37 page 258-259 parts 15-16.  Our study assignment remains the Lesson 8 questions from The Montfort Fathers’ Marian Home Study.  Our next meeting will be May 25, 2016 at 7PM.
