Weekly Meeting September 13, 2017

During the 187th meeting of the Regina Cordium praesidium which was held at The Montfort Spiritual Center of Bay Shore, NY; The Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary were prayed.  The Spiritual reading was taken from the Handbook page 23-24, chapter 5 titled:  The Devotional Outlook of The Legion.  The Allocutio was given by Father Hugh Gillespie concerning the Invocation of the Holy Spirit and its significance at the beginning of every Legionary meeting.  The significance is that the person of The Holy Spirit transforms the believer.  The Holy Spirit takes David, a shepherd boy, and turns him into a king.  It is also the Holy Spirit who makes Apostles of fishermen.  The Holy Spirit transforms the ordinary and powerless into the extraordinary and powerful.  Thus it is, that at every Legionary meeting we call upon the Holy Spirit in Mary to enable us to perform all of our works.  The Handbook assignment is to read Chapter 6 titled:  The Duty of Legionaries Toward Mary page 25-27  part 1.  Our next meeting will be September 20, 2017 at 7PM.
