“The Legion of Mary is apostolic duty decked out in attractive and alluring form; throbbing with life so that it wins all to it; undertaken in the manner stipulated by Pope Pius XI, that is, in dependence on the Virgin Mother of God; insistent on quality as the foundation of membership and even as the key to numerical strength; safeguarded by plenteous prayer and self-sacrifice, by exact system, and by complete co-operation with the priest. The Legion of Mary is a miracle of these modern times.” (Handbook Chapter 10 The Legion Apostolate, Section 3 : The Legion and the Lay Apostolate.)


Presentata Curia Praesidia

First of all it might be necessary to explain for the sake of non Legion visitors that the word Praesidium is a Latin word and is the Legion term used to describe a group of Legion of Mary members. It was the Roman Legion word for a small detachement of soldiers so it is very appropriate name for a group of Christian soldiers. Here below there is a brief description of each of the praesidia in our Curia. There is a wide variety of work and activities in our Curia and so there should be some work to suit every taste. There are four praesidia attached to the Morning Star Hostel and six attached to the Regina Coeli Hostel and the rest of our Praesidia are mainly involved in the parishes in our Curia area.

Each member of the Church is summoned by Christ its head to play his part in the work of the Mystical Body. “ “Jesus Christ” - we read in the Constitution Lumen Gentium - “by communicating his spirit to his brothers and sisters, called together from all peoples, made them mystically into his own body. In that body the life of Christ is communicated to those who believe . . . As all the members of the human body, though they are many form one body, so also are the Faithful in Christ. (cf 1 Cor 12:12) Also in the building up of Christ's body there is a diversity of members and functions” . . . The spirit of the Lord gives a vast variety of charisms inviting people to assume different ministries and forms of service . . .” (CL 20). (Handbook Chapter 9 The Legionary and the Mystical Body of Christ, Section 2 Mary and the Mystical Body.)
