Weekly Meeting January 24, 2018

During the 205th 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 54-54 chapter 9 titled: The Legionary and the Mystical Body of Christ, part 2 titled:  Mary and the Mystical Body (up to paragraph 2 on page 55).  The Allocutio was read by Mary from Theology of the Apostolate of The Legion of Mary by Leon Joseph Cardinal Suenens page 53-54 titled:  Courage and Latent Heroism (part 4).  In this section, Cardinal Suenens reminds us that because souls are at stake in this troubled world, we as Legionaries,  should be steadfast and active in spreading the word about our faith.  We cannot be complacent and leave this important work for others to do.  We need to be strong and practice courageous Catholicism because there is much spiritual distress surrounding us.  Grasping the Vexillum as we each make our Promise, we form an alliance between ourselves and Mary, the Queen of God’s battles.  Let us avail ourselves of the courage that resides in each of us so all souls can be saved!  The Handbook assignment is chapter 9 part 2 paragraph 3 to end page 55-56.  The book study is Introduction to Saint Louis de Montfort page  xi-xxvi and Allocutio of Pope Pius XII page xxvii-xxviii from True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary by Saint Louis Marie De Montfort.  Our next meeting will be January 31, 2018 at 7PM.
