Frank Duff himself always carried in his heart a positive disposition of friendship to all people and he in his way really lived out those words of Our Lord, “Whatever house you enter, let your first words be: Peace to this house!”
If people find in us a spirit of genuine friendship and goodwill towards them, even if they are odd as two left feet or if they be negative souls who moan and gripe about things, we can already begin to open doors to their hearts.
Once we keep in mind that this other person—no matter how deformed or disfigured—is a child of God whom the heavenly Father loves surely we must greet them with love and peace.

Legion of Mary Child Safeguarding Policy
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 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.
