LEGION OF MARY
WHAT IS THE LEGION OF MARY?
"The Legion of Mary is a mighty legion of brave and valiant soldiers of Jesus and Mary, of both sexes, to fight the devil, the world, and corrupt nature in those more than ever perilous times, that are to come!"
(As prophesied by St. Louis Marie de Montfort)
The Legion of Mary is the true evangelization. It was founded in Dublin, Ireland on September 7, 1921. This year the Legion of Mary celebrated the 102nd Anniversary. It is the largest lay apostolate in the Catholic Church. There are members in every country in the world. The Legion of Mary was approved by six popes including Saint John XXIII and St. John Paul II. It was endorsed by the Second Vatican Council.
The Legion of Mary is a school for saints, and we are all called to be saints. It keeps members young in spirit and body. It saves souls!
Saint David Legion of Mary, named "Mary Tower of David," was founded on September 8, 2007. This year marks the Sixteenth Anniversary. Our Blessed Mother is the Spirit of the Legion!
Mary, Tower of David, pray for us!
Cornerstone of the Legion of Mary Apostolic Work
Blessed Mother Mary is the spouse of the Holy Spirit and is Jesus' first disciple and first evangelizer. Therefore, "the world is to be conquered by the Holy Spirit acting through Mary and her children" to bring souls in closer union with Jesus Christ. (Legion of Mary Handbook)
The Three C's:
Conversion seeks to locate the unchurched and invite them to inquire of our great faith.
Conservation seeks to find fallen away Catholics and invite them to return to the Church.
Consolation seeks to maintain a caring and affectionate connection with the Church's homebound, sick and infirm members.
