Consider Legion membership?

To become a member of the Legion of Mary you have to be a Catholic. There are two main types of membership: Active and Auxiliary. Active members go to their meeting once a week and do two hours work which is assigned by the Legion Meeting (Praesidium) Auxiliary members are usually older people who for health reasons may not be able to do the work that active members do or for some other reason cannot go to a meeting every week or do the active work but they can commit themselves to saying the Legion prayers everyday for the Legion. A common example would be Mothers with young children. The prayers of children are very powerful and children should be especially encouraged to pray for so many of the problems in our society. One priest told us that the prayers of children are unconditional and so they are very powerful. Auxilaries are a vital asset to the Legion as Frank Duff says in the handbook that an army cannot operate if their is no one to make the ammunition! So the active members really need a lot of people praying for their work and the success of their work is very dependant on the fervent prayers of the auxiliaries. It is a great blessing for the auxilaries too because they also have other auxilaries praying for them too. We are all praying for each other.

There is usually a large variety of work that Active members can do in a Parish and it is up to each praesidium to organise a variety of works for its members. Usually members can visit the sick in Nursing homes or hospitals or in our Curia we have the two hostels for homeless men or women and children. So if you are thinking of joining the Legion either in this Curia or in your own area please check out what types of work the Praesidium is doing and then have courage to give it a try. Many people go to prayer meetings to receive graces and blessings for themselves but the Legion of Mary is more heroic because Legionaries help other people to receive great blessings. One few minutes conversation with a contact can help them get on the right road to God and they might help many others too so there can be a domino effect to this great work.

The object of the Legion of Mary is the glory of God through the holiness of its members developed by prayer and active co-operation, under ecclesiastical guidance, in Mary's and the Church's work of crushing the head of the serpent and advancing the reign of Christ.
