Legion of Mary Retreat at Mercy College, Coburg

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.

teresaliu 150A woman who spent 20 years imprisoned in China for being a faithful Catholic has helped hundreds of Chinese migrants convert to the faith in Australia. Teresa Liu, now 86 and living in Sydney, was imprisoned in Guangzhou from 1957 to 1977 by the Chinese communist government. She was never given a trial and spent some of her sentence in solitary confinement — at one point for a period of seven months. Denied access to the sacraments and the Bible throughout her incarceration, Liu kept her faith alive by praying secretly in her cell. Liu’s crime was being a member of a Catholic lay organization, the Legion of Mary, which was considered an “anti-revolutionary” group by the Chinese leaders.
