Legion of Mary Retreat at Mercy College, Coburg

From the Handbook of the Legion

1. (Legionaries) Must "put on the whole armour of God". (Eph 6:11)
The Roman Legion, from which the Legion takes its name, has come down through the centuries illustrious for loyalty, courage, discipline, endurance, and success, and this for ends that were often base and never more than worldly. Manifestly, Mary's Legion cannot offer to her…qualities less notable, so that in these qualities is indicated the very minimum of legionary service. St. Clement, who was converted by St. Peter and was a fellow-worker of St. Paul, proposes the Roman army as a model to be imitated by the Church.
