Yesterday the Legion of Mary ( " Legio Mariae " ) , completed 92 years of age . " Along with a group of Catholic women and Fr Michael Toher , Arquidiciose of Dublin , founded the first praesidium of the Legion of Mary, 7 September 1921 . From this date until death, November 7, 1980 , directed the world-wide extension of the Legion with heroic dedication. He attended the Second Vatican Council as a lay observer . "

" Your outbursts of deep understanding of the role of the Blessed Virgin in the plan of redemption , as well as the role of the laity in the mission of the Church , reflected in the Manual almost entirely the work of his hands . " ( 1 )

Its founder was named Emeritus , FRANK DUFF , who was born in Dublin, Ireland, June 7, 1889 . " He joined the Civil Functionalism to 18 years . At 24 , he joined the Society of St. Vincent de Paul , where he was taken to a deeper commitment to his Catholic faith and purchased at the same time , a great sensitivity to the needs of the poor and disadvantaged . " ( 2 )Inspired by the Roman Legion , its members are a real " army in order of battle " , from the Latin " acies " .

There are two types of members legionaries : assets and auxiliaries. The assets must attend a weekly meeting of the Praesidium and make concrete works given by the President of the same .I joined the Legion , on 23 March 2004 . First as an active member and later today , I am an auxiliary member . The auxiliary member is committed to pray to " Catena Legionis " every day . A small booklet containing the prayers themselves the Legion , and her heart , the " Magnificat " of Mary , referred to in the Gospel of Luke 1 .

I am also a member of the Health Ministry , near the Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette , in São Paulo , Capital , where , along with my friend Sr.Henrique , we do every Friday , visiting the sick in the Hospital San Paolo ( former Hospital Volunteers .) Who lives in São Paulo , in the north , knows .

Well the Legion aims to live the Marian spirituality translated into concrete works , such as seen in prisons , hospital visits , visits in homes with families , taking , including where appropriate , the Holy Eucharist to the sick , unable to go to church .The Legion was a blessing in my life ! I am fully realized in volunteer work I do. At the end of the year we make New Christmas and visits in homes to pray the Rosary and meditating on the Word of God .
