The Legion of Mary Child Safeguarding Policy aims to do everything
possible to provide a safe environment for children and young people
where they are cherished and encouraged to become involved in the life
of our Church.
The basic principle of the True Devotion is to go to Jesus through Mary just as Jesus comes to us through Mary. The aim of the Legion therefore is to bring Mary to the world as the infallible means of winning the world to Jesus.
This presupposes a proper understanding of the God given role of Mary in the plan and execution of the work of redemption. Following on those principles Frank Duff passionately believed that real devotion to Mary obliges us to apostleship.
An important way of understanding the nature of all apostolate is by seeing it as a sharing in Mary's maternal care of the mystical Body of Christ and indeed of all humankind.
Rev. Fr. Bede McGregor, O.P., Concilium Spiritual Director
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 in about 170 countries. With the approval and support of the Popes and a great many Bishops, Priests and Religious, as well as the prayers and efforts of legionaries, the Legion, by the grace of God, has grown into a worldwide organisation with several million members.
