About the Legion 

 

The Legion of Mary is a world-wide organization of Catholics, men and women, who offer their services to their pastor to aid him in performing spiritual works in the parish. This is done by placing themselves under the banner of Mary so that with her help they may develop greater holiness in their own lives as well as spread a deeper devotion to her among others.

Objectives 

 

• The personal sanctification of its members, who, taking Mary as their model, endeavor to imitate her virtues, especially her Faith, Charity, and Humility.


• The spread of devotion to Mary, primarily by encouraging the recitation of the Rosary (Mary’s request at Fatima).


• The performance of apostolic work under the direction of the Spiritual Director of the parish unit of the Legion.

Types of Membership 

 

Active members and Auxiliary (praying) members.

Reasons for Becoming an Active Member

• To satisfy the individual’s obligation incurred through the Sacrament of Confirmation, to fulfill his duty as a soldier of Christ.


• To follow the direction of Pope St. Pius X who said, “What is most necessary at this time is to have in each parish a group of laymen at the same time, virtuous, enlightened, determined, and really apostolic.”

Advantages of Being an Active Member

• The assurance that one is putting forth his best effort in developing his own spiritual life.


• The knowledge that one is furthering the cause of Christ and His Blessed Mother.


• The feeling that one is making a worthwhile investment of his time on earth by “laying up treasures in heaven where neither rust nor moths consume nor thieves break in to steal.”

Examples of Apostolic Work Undertaken

• Visiting the sick in hospitals, infirmaries, and their own homes.


• Distributing Catholic literature.


• Visiting families to see if children have been baptized.


• Encouraging fallen-away Catholics to return to the practice of their faith.


• Spreading devotion to the family Rosary.


• Helping converts in the practice of their faith.


• Visiting Catholic families to promote membership in the Apostleship of Prayer and Enthronement of the Sacred Heart in their home.
