During the 207th 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 56-58 chapter 9 titled: The Legionary and The Mystical Body of Christ part 3 titled: Suffering in The Mystical Body. The Allocutio was given by Father Hugh Gillespie concerning the most basic element of The Legion of Mary which is to give glory to God. We, as Legionaries, can do this by being more prayerful and actively cooperating with each other under ecclesiastical guidance in Mary’s and the Church’s work which is crushing the head of the serpent and advancing the reign of Christ. As we practice being more prayerful and cooperate with each other always abiding by the wishes of the Parish priest or the Bishop, we are gradually increasing in holiness. We glorify God best when we allow His will to be done in us. We must surrender ourselves in Our Lady’s and the Church’s work. Whenever we visit others, we are caring for them and helping to rescue their souls. Let us then glorify God by our prayers and guided works. The Handbook assignment is Chapter 10 page 59-60 titled: The Legion Apostolate part 1 titled: It’s Dignity and part 2 titled: An Apostolic Laity Essential. The Study assignment is from True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary by St. Louis De Montfort page 3-6 titled: The Grandeurs of Mary. Our next meeting will be February 14, 2018 at 7pm.
