annualmass02 2021 150"Friends, this year marks 100 years of the Legion of Mary, and today I had the privilege of celebrating Mass with Fr Justin Ford and other members of the Legion at St Mary's Church in Ascot Vale. The Legion of Mary is an international Catholic lay-run organisation of men and women who, by virtue of their baptism and under the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary, work together to bring the Good News of of our Lord Jesus to the peripheries. Inspired by the witness of the Legion's founder Frank Duff (now a Servant of God), may we too place ourselves under the patronage of our heavenly Mother, as we seek to live out our baptismal call in this time and place." - Archbishop Peter A Comensoli

Heavenly Father, we praise and bless you as we celebrate the joyful centenary of Mary’s Legion. Under the loving rule and guidance of their Mother and Queen, and in the grace of the Holy Spirit, legionaries have come to Jesus through Mary and have led countless souls on that same shining way. Grant that in our own time, we her Legion may be renewed on this path of holiness and evangelisation, for the salvation of the world, to the praise of your glory. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Mary Immaculate, our Queen, our Mother, intercede with your divine Son for your Legion, that it may be strong in faithfulness and abundant in fruitfulness, as we move forward in trustful hope.

The Role and Spirit of the Legion

The Legion of Mary is an international Catholic lay organisation, which aims to collaborate in the Church's mission of evangelisation. Its members engage in the direct religious apostolate, especially towards those most remote from the Church's influence. In the spiritual formation of its members the Legion places much emphasis on the doctrine of the Mystical Body of Christ, on seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and on the performance of apostolic work in union with Mary.

Members place themselves at the service of Mary, and wish to help her in her mission as "Mother of the Church."
