Quote of the Day
Now I wish to speak briefly of the most fundamental of all models Frank Duff uses for explaining the nature of the apostolate: it is the union of the Holy Spirit and Mary that gives Jesus, the eternal Word made flesh to the world. We have already said that there is nothing in Mary that is not a reference to Christ.

She is totally Christocentric and if our devotion to her were to terminate in her it would not be a true devotion. We go through and with Mary to Jesus. There is a similar movement in Mary to the Holy Spirit. She is totally open to the Holy Spirit, completely under his influence. He is the primary agent in her mothering of Jesus and His mystical Body. He is the primary agent in all evangelisation. And the position of the Holy Spirit in relation to Mary is the principal paradigm for the Legion of Mary.

The Legionary makes his promise to the Holy Spirit. Everything in the Legion is subject to his influence and overshadowing. It is because the spirit of the Legion is the spirit of Mary that the Holy Spirit has the absolute primacy in the life of the legionary. And it is the combination of Mary and the Holy Spirit that makes the apostolic person most adapted to bringing Jesus into the lives of others.
Rev. Fr. Bede McGregor, O.P., Concilium Spiritual Director
