The Legion of Mary
Ad Jesum, per Mariam
Who is she that comes forth
as the morning rising,
fair as the moon,
bright as the sun,
terrible as an army
set in battle array?
The Legion of Mary is a lay apostolic association of Catholics who, with the sanction of the Church and under the powerful leadership of Mary Immaculate, Mediatrix of All Graces, serve the Church and their neighbour on a voluntary basis.
True devotion to the Blessed Virgin is holy –
that is, it leads us to avoid sin
and to imitate her, especially in her
then principal virtues:
her profound humility;
her lively faith;
her unquestioning obedience; her unceasing prayer;
her all-embracing mortification;
her incomparable purity;
her ardent charity; her heroic patience;
her angelic sweetness; and her divine wisdom. St Louis Marie de Montfort
Become a soldier of Christ in the army of Mary.
– Pray the Legion Prayer based on prayers to the Most Holy Trinity, and The Rosary
Realising the necessity for a strong support of prayer, the Legion has Auxiliary members, who associate themselves with the Legion by undertaking a service of prayer in its name.

The Legion of Mary has been active in St Anselm’s parish since Fr Philip set it up in February 1998. The mission of the Legion is two-fold: to increase the spirituality of members and to help people come to a greater love of Our Lord through stronger devotion to His Mother. We carry out this apostolic work by calling door-to-door on all homes in the parish. At the doorstep we encourage practising Catholics in their faith and encourage the lapsed to return. We promote the rosary as a devotion to Our Lady; we encourage those we meet to make full use of the sacraments; we give guidance to non-Catholics who are interested in learning more about the faith. This work is not for everyone. If you are interested, do come along.
