Never, Never, Never, Leave the Legion of Mary

(excerpt from Fr. Richard Soulliere, former Legion Envoy to Mexico and presently Spiritual Director of Miami Regia, Florida, at an annual ACIES ceremony)
taken from Maria Legionis 4/2008

"If you see a problem while you are in the Legion, do not drop out, maybe it is your expertise that is needed. Be part of the solution! If you drop out, you will increase the problem for others and you will always look back on it as part of your squandered life.

Mary has given us the example we must follow: In the Annunciation, without warning, out of the blue, totally unexpected, the Angel Gabriel stood before her and asked her if she would become the mother of the Son of God. Fortunately, she said "Yes, be it done to me according to your word!"
Look where God took her! She is now fourth in command, after the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - and far above the rest of us!

But, supposing she had said, "no, not me, I'm too busy" or "No, let Mary Jones do it, she's better qualified than I". Then, for the rest of her life, she would have looked back on her squandered life. So, stay in there - say "yes" and see where God takes you!

How blessed we are to be members of the Legion of Mary!
The Legion is constantly striving to make us saints!
So always remember.....
