Mary, the Mother of God, desires only to bring others to Christ. Mary is the “Star of the New Evangelization”, according to Pope Paul VI, Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict, and now Pope Francis (Joy of the Gospel.) The Legion of Mary is a lay Catholic association whose members are giving service to the Church, on a voluntary basis, all over the world. It was founded in Myra House, Francis Street, Dublin, Ireland, on 7 September, 1921 by Frank Duff. At present, it has about 10 million members in over 191 countries. The official handbook of the Legion has been published in at least 50 languages.
We are not afraid to go out into the streets; we are not afraid to knock on doors; we are not afraid to stand up for our faith.
The Legion of Mary is a wonderful way to be part of the new evangelization by works of conversion for those who do not know Christ, consolation of the sick and suffering, and conservation of the faith of the members of the body of Christ.
