During the 197th 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 Chapter 6 page 40-41 titled: The Duties of Legionaries Towards Mary, completion of part 5. The Allocutio was read by Mary from Theology of The Apostolate of The Legion of Mary by Leon Joseph Cardinal Suenens page 43-44 titled: Union With Mary and Personal Sanctification. In this section, Cardinal Suenens reminds us that the apostolate and personal sanctification are the same thing. As time goes on, Mary establishes her reign in the hearts of Legionaries. Legionaries then begin to think only of others and to perform all types of kindnesses for the sake of the souls of others just as a mother would for her children. As a result of the selfless acts of her Legionaries, Mary, the most kind and generous of all creatures is never outdone in generosity. Thus she showers her Legionaries with unending graces from God as we continue to perform our works with love. May our union with Mary lead us to see our neighbors with new eyes, (Mary’s), speak of them with Mary’s tongue and love them with Mary’s heart! Let us all pray to be more like Mary in all we do. The Handbook assignment is Chapter 7 page 41-43 ending before the Second Divine Person. The Study assignment is to complete Living Total Consecration by Father Hugh Gillespie. Our next meeting will be November 29, 2017 at 7PM.
