During the 142nd 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 294-295, chapter 39 titled: Cardinal Points of The Legion Apostolate parts 11-13. The Allocutio was given by Father Hugh Gillespie concerning the small number of organizations which offer weekly prayers for their deceased members. There are some that remember to pray for their local departed members but The Legion of Mary prays each and every week for all departed members worldwide. Tens of thousands are praying each and every week for the departed Auxiliaries and members. This is truly remarkable and comforting to know since the deceased can no longer pray on their own behalf for the salvation of their souls. Let us be ever mindful of our dear departed especially during this month of November as we pray for all souls. The Handbook assignment is page 295-296 parts 14-15. We have begun our Preparation for Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary as of November 2nd. Our next meeting will be November 9, 2016 at 7PM.
