During the 188th meeting of the Regina Cordium praesidium which was held at The Montfort Spiritual Center of Bay Shore, NY; the Luminous Mysteries were prayed. The Spiritual reading was taken from the Handbook page 25-27 chapter 6 titled: The Duty of Legionaries Towards Mary part 1. The Allocutio was given by Father Hugh Gillespie concerning the joyfulness in who we are as Legionaries. Although September 15 was the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, we celebrated her as we gathered for our Hymns to Mary program with family, friends and other Legionaries. As we learned to sing, we made a joyful sound in honor of Our Lady. The very next day, at the conference presented by Father Hugh Gillespie about renewing the consecration, we were joyfully reminded of how to give ourselves to Jesus through Mary. We, as Legionaries, should show the beauty of the Catholic tradition through music and art as well as through prayer and devotion. We should always remember to rejoice with Our Lady as she rejoices in God her Savior! The Handbook assignment is Chapter 6 part 2 page 27-29 paragraphs 1-5. Our next meeting will be September 27, 2017 at 7PM.
