What is the most important Council in the Senatus? - Why it's YOUR Council! Somewhere, a Legionary is talking to a person about Jesus and Mary and inviting him to attend Church. At that moment, that Legionary is the most important person in the Legion, and his Council as well - so make sure you attend your Council meetings!

  Please ensure that all Legionaries in your Praesidium read the official News Notes mailed to each council, and part presented here.
  Also, please note that each month's News Notes must be first approved at the Senatus of the following month. Therefore, the News Notes below will, of necessity, 
  be 1&1/2, to two months later.

Pope Francis' Prayer for the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy
  Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father, and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him. Show us your face and we will be saved. Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money; the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created things; made Peter weep after his betrayal, and assured Paradise to the repentant thief. Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman: "If you knew the gift of God!"

You are the visible face of the invisible Father, of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy: let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and glorified. You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in weakness in order that they may feel compassion for those in ignorance and error: let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.

Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing, so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord, and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor, proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed, and restore sight to the blind.

We ask this through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Mercy, you who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever. Amen.

        "No Other Catholic Organization does as much evangelization as the Legion of Mary" - Fr. Goode, Chaplain

                                  Below, an excerpt from Porta fidei, - Emeritus Pope Benedict urges us to publicly profess our faith:
"Confessing with the lips indicates in turn that faith implies public testimony and commitment. A Christian may never think of belief as a private act. Faith is choosing to stand with the Lord so as to live with him. This “standing with him” points towards an understanding of the reasons for believing. Faith, precisely because it is a free act, also demands social responsibility for what one believes. The Church on the day of Pentecost demonstrates with utter clarity this public dimension of believing and proclaiming one’s faith fearlessly to every person. It is the gift of the Holy Spirit that makes us fit for mission and strengthens our witness, making it frank and courageous."
