Legion of Mary  |  Our Lady, Spouse of the Holy Spirit
The Detroit Michigan Regia, United States of America
Object of the Legion
Object of the Legion
The Legion of Mary is an  association  of  Catholics  who,  with  the  sanction  of  the
Church and  under  the  powerful  leadership  of  Mary  Immaculate;  Mediatrix  of  all
Graces, have formed themselves into a legion  for  service  to  the  Church  and  Our
Lady.

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

The Legionaries hope to render  themselves  worthy  of
their great heavenly Queen by their loyalty, their virtues
and their courage.

The Legion is built on two masterpieces of organization
-the  Roman  Legion  and  the  modern  Society  of   St.
Vincent de Paul.  From the Roman  Legion  comes  the
call for loyalty, courage, and discipline.   From  Fredrick
Ozanam's  St.  Vincent  de   Paul   Society  comes  its
spiritual, adaptability, fraternal charity, the  personal  re-
port at the weekly meeting, and visiting in  pairs  during
their assigned work.

The  primary  obligation  set  by  the  Legion  as  a  standard  procedure   is   regular
attendance at the weekly meeting, a brief weekly report, and accepting  the  spiritual
work of bringing Christ to souls and souls to Christ.  This work  is  assigned  by  the
spiritual director or the president and is usually done in pairs.
