mentone80yrs 150On the 7th September, 2013, the Praesidium of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour was 80 years old. We celebrated the occasion on the following day, a Sunday, the 8th September, 2013. If the 8th had been a weekday it would have been designated as the Feast of the Nativity of Our Holy Mother and Queen of the Legion. Father John Walshe, the Parish Priest of St. Patrick and the Holy Angels Church in Mentone celebrated Mass at 11:00 am during which he gave a very insightful homily on the Legion of Mary and how well it operated in his parish caring for souls.

On this Memorial of Pope Saint Leo the Great, we celebrate a courageous successor of Saint Peter, a man who wielded the Keys of the Kingdom that Christ entrusted to the fisherman of Galilee. Pope Leo was a teacher and scholar, a great preacher, and we still have some of his beautiful sermons. He was a skilled opponent of the heresies that were tearing at the Church in the fifth century. He was a leader and protector of the people amidst drastic social changes that happened as the Roman Empire fell apart. He confronted the barbarian leader Attila the Hun whose army was heading towards Rome and the city was spared.  Today, to mark his feast, six tall candles burn on the altar where his relics rest, on the left side of St Peter’s basilica, at the far end of that great church.

Same-Sex Marriage

A Pastoral Letter from the Catholic Bishops of Australia to all Australians on the ‘Same-sex Marriage’ Debate:  pdf Dont Mess With Marriage


As legionaries of Mary and committed lay people of the Catholic Church, it is your right to know the teaching of the Church on this hotly debated issue in Australia. I came across the teaching of the Church in its clearest form in the Perth Archdiocesan website. The author of the following article is none other than the most Reverend Tim Costelloe, Archbishop of Perth. It is quoted here in full. (NB: Any emphasis and underlining is mine by way of drawing your attention to a crucial point in the Archbishop’s argument.)
