All men are saved through Christ's death

Concluding Legion Prayers

Overview on Congress by President Alice Dabney, Providence Comitium: 

As any good legionary will tell you that when God invites you to undertake a task he also gives you the grace to carry it out.
The following are excerpts from Allocutios from Fr. Bede McGregor OP.  Spiritual Director of Concilium
“After many years of studying Brother Frank Duff’s writings and talks, I have come to the conclusion that the Eucharist was the most important reality in his life. It was absolutely central to his personal existence”.
The following is part of an address given by Mr. Frank Duff in New York, during his visit to the U.S.A. on the occasion of his reception of the Annual Marianist Award, 1956 from the University of Dayton, Ohio.
Brother Duff states: “Everyone must pour himself into another soul! I suggest that no Catholic should be accounted safe unless you have some evidence that real faith reigns in his heart, and you should not take things for granted. You should not assume the existence of an efficient working faith until you have reason to believe that it is there. Seek out and talk to every soul!’
Fr. Bede McGregor OP continues: “Christ Acts Through His Body. The Mystical Body began when the Second Divine Person came among us. To live our life, He took flesh in the Virgin's womb and was born as a baby; and the body that He took on was God's instrument. The Second Divine Person carried out His mission through it, and although that Person Jesus Christ, was God, He conformed to the limitations of that body.
His Life on earth was not something existing for that time alone. It was intended to be followed by a new and bigger life, a more influential life, in a new body. The Mystical Body, lives like the original one, almost as if Our Lord had continued growing after His death. As a very distinguished Nuncio recently declared to us, we are His mouth, His eyes, His ears, His hands, His feet; and He has no other. We are His means of action. If we give ourselves to Him, He can carry on His mission in our days. Christ acts through us. Christ needs our action.
We must realize our responsibility in the light of the doctrine of the Mystical Body which means that the Lord depends on us. We must be active. We must lend ourselves to the Lord and His Mother in faith and in conscious practice of that doctrine. We must act with the deliberate intention of giving Him to people. We must open our mouths and talk in the belief that He will in His own fashion utilize those poor words of ours as the bearers of His message of salvation. We must help preach the Gospel to every creature, reaching out to every soul.

 “Mary is the privileged instrument of the Holy Spirit. The story of the Eucharist begins in her: ‘and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.’ She is the mother of Jesus in time and eternity and Jesus is always the fruit of her womb and this includes Jesus in the Eucharist. There would be no Eucharist if Mary had not consented to the will and plan of God for the redemption of the world. God could of course have done something different but He chose Mary as an essential part of all his plans. She is the Mother of the Word and in a certain sense she is a living Bible because she kept all the words and deeds of Jesus in her heart where she treasured and pondered over them and above all lived them. We see the link between the Eucharist and Evangelization in Mary. In more recent papal teaching the various popes bring out this connection by calling Mary the Woman of the Eucharist and the Star of Evangelization.”
The whole world needs this Christ of the Eucharist. There is hope for the greatest sinner!
Does Mary approach souls? The answer to that question provides a blueprint for the whole Legion Apostolate or what we call more often today, Evangelization. First and foremost, Mary is totally focused on Jesus. Her role is to bring Jesus into the world, to bring Jesus into the center of every human life. In union with Mary that is also the goal of all Legion activity - the purpose of Evangelization. Mary's approach to souls is maternal.
Mothers do not deal in abstractions, they deal with each individual child, and they deal with persons in intimate personal contact. That is pre-eminently the case with Mary, the Mother of the Church and of all mankind. It is also the nature of a true mother that all her actions spring from her heart and she can wish for nothing else but the good of the child, especially its eternal good. It is also supremely important that a mother never gives up on her child no matter what the circumstances may be. The Legion seeks to share in Mary's maternity of souls and therefore seeks to bring all the characteristics of Mary's approach to souls. It is a magnificent ideal that our Founder puts before the Legion and we need to keep going back to it for inspiration and guidance. The salvation of souls is the most sublime work of mercy.
 There can be no true Evangelization without Mary. Recent Popes have called Our Lady the 'Star of Evangelization'. She throws light on the very nature of Evangelization and she accompanies every form and activity of Evangelization and apostolate.
We will finalize this overview with a thought from Pope Francis.
Pope Francis in a recent homily reminded us to persevere in living the Gospel
He said we should not stay locked inside, but must “go out, to encounter, to take care of, to throw the leaven of the Gospel in the pasta of society, above all where there is most need, where the Gospel is awaited and invoked: in poverty, in suffering, in trials”
Our Blessed Mother will always accompany us as we evangelize and strive to bring her Son, Jesus to every soul in service to the Church and to society.
Alice Dabney, O.P., President

                                                                 SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR: REV. TONINO SENNA, XAVERIAN MISSIONARIES


PROGRAM: Mass, Conference I, Stations of the Cross, Legion Prayers, Holy Rosary, Lunch break, Conference II, Exposition and adoration of Most Blessed Sacrament, with ongoing Sacrament of Reconciliation, to close  event.

The Day of Recollection started with Holy Mass in the main Chapel of Fatima Shrine.
The event was very well attended by 120 members of Legion of Mary, family and friends of Boston Senatus. The people were filled with the Holy  Spirit. First Conference after Mass: Rev. Tonino Senna gave very inspiring teachings on Mary, perfect model willed by God to lead us to Our Redeemer Jesus Christ. The conference focused on God's Loving Mercy, by sending His Son to be our Redeemer, Emmanuel, God is with us, and as a brother to embrace our humanity, and give us a share in His Divine Life. The Sinless One has totally emptied out in awesome humility, to suffer and die to save us sinners, by conquering death and restore believers for God's Kingdom. All this He has done not because we have loved Him, but He has first loved us. We must ask ourselves daily; 'How can I be merciful today and fulfill God's will?'
Wonderful reflections gathered from the Day of Recollection: Mary is the Mother of Jesus who in His ineffable Loving Mercy on the Cross gave Mary at the foot of the Cross, to be the Spiritual Mother of mankind, and she became Our Mother of Mercy. We owe her our loving devotion, giving her our total trust, because her Mission is to reclaim wayward children for God in Jesus. Fr. Tonino shared with us his conversion story: a mighty miracle happened to him: in his early youth Fr. Tonino was a an atheist and a communist sympathizer; one day without knowing why, he attended a Catholic Church meeting, and became drawn to those meetings. After that to make the story short he was converted and was baptized and eventually became a priest, who has directed our Senatus Day of Recollection. This is certainly the most beautiful story of his life shared with us, bearing great witness to the Glory of God's Most Merciful Love, inspiring us all to believe that Faithful Catholics are great instruments in bringing souls to God: Christian friendship is an effective way of evangelization. We do our part faithfully, and God Mighty God does the Conversion.

Homily by Fr. Robert Bailey

Gems gathered from the conferences: God's great Mercy has blessed us with the Centenary year 2017, of the Apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima. Why did she appear to children? Because Children are wonderful innocent witnesses and will surely tell what they saw; adults perhaps may not do it, our of a certain fear and not certain whether they would be believed. Our Lady as Our Mother continuously intercedes to her Son Jesus, when we run to her for help, obtaining for us the most secure and loving protection from Jesus. This is why she is  called Our Refuge and Our Hope. She wakes us up to the loving presence of Jesus, who is Love and Peace beyond understanding.

Our Lady at Fatima asked very much from the child seers- Lucia Dos Santos, 9 years old; Francisco Marto 7 years old; Jacinta Marto, 6 years old: pray Rosary, do penance and fast for sinner; remember they were  very young children. They immediately entrusted themselves to Mary,  giving their 'Fiat' to her and two of them became the youngest Saints, receiving from God Eternal Glory at a very young age. So let us All promptly give with joy,  our personal 'Fiat' to Mary who will bring us to the foot of the Cross of Jesus. This is the Message of Fatima to the world: Prayer, Repentance, Love of neighbor as ourselves, by making amends to God for ourselves and for sinners. Let us All embrace Our Lady of Fatima in this centenary year, renewing our resolution to be perpetually  consecrated to Mary and with the hope of  arriving at union with Jesus and truly rest in Jesus Our Lord in Eternal Glory.

The event was very well attended by members of Legion of Mary, family and friends of Boston Senatus. The people were filled with the Holy  Spirit. First Conference: Rev. Matteucig gave very inspiring teachings on Mary, Queen and Mother:

Pearls gathered from the Day of Recollection:

Rev. Mattuecig began with the first conference  teaching Mary's Fiat. Subsequent prayers proceeded with the Stations of the Cross on the grounds of the Shrine followed the first conference; then Holy Rosary was prayed with elderly in the conference hall, led by Rev. Brauleu Roger Pereias, CSsR, and the rest  prayed on the grounds of shrine.

Thereafter, the  Second Conference resumed; the discussion focused on God's Mercy as witnessed by Mary, Our Mother of Mercy. We best access God's Mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and very wise to practice it regularly and fervently. Lunch break was followed by the exposition of the Most Blessed Sacrament for adoration. During this time the Sacrament of Reconciliation was provided. The day ended thereafter at 4.30 PM. The people were renewed with greater love for Mary and more authentic commitment to Our Lord Jesus Christ in Mary, our Queen and Mather.  They were filled with deep gratitude and great joy over God's Blessings showered on us ALL.
