During the 203rd meeting of the Regina Cordium praesidium, which was held at The Montfort Spiritual Center of Bay Shore, NY; the Joyful Mysteries of The Rosary were prayed. The Spiritual reading was taken from the Handbook page 51-52 chapter 9 titled: The Legionary and the Mystical Body of Christ, ending with paragraph 2 on page 52. The Allocutio was given by Father Hugh concerning the visited persons who have passed away. Our visits have been to the retired priests and religious for human companionship and to enable them to embrace their vocations for past, present and future. There is a fragility in being human. When we, as Legionaries, are present at wakes and funerals of those we have visited, this extends our visits to include all stages of life. It shows that we continue to pray for those visited and that they are being remembered. It is important to pray for all those visited especially during this season of Christmas when He who is born homeless now opens the door of His home to those who have died. Let us continue to always pray for all those visited who have passed away. May they always be remembered. The Handbook assignment is Chapter 9 titled: The Legionary and the Mystical Body of Christ page 52-53 paragraph 3 to the end of Part 1 titled: Legionary Service is Based on this Doctrine. Our next meeting is January 17, 2018 at 7 PM.
