The Legion of Mary
The Legion of Mary, which has recently been re-established in the Cathedral parish, has now completed the probationary time of prayer and will now also begin its work of evangelizing. The two works we have chosen for the Legion are to make simple rosaries to be given away, and to conduct the enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary in the homes of the faithful. If you would like to have the Enthronement in your home, please call the parish office and leave your number. We will ask the Legion members to visit the home once to prepare for the ceremony, and on the second visit the enthronement can take place (as often as we can, we will try to have a priest or a deacon to preside).
The Twelve Promises of Jesus to Saint Margaret Mary for those devoted to His Sacred Heart are:
I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.
I will establish peace in their families.
I will console them in all their troubles.
They shall find in My Heart an assured refuge during life and especially at the hour of their death.
I will pour abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
Sinners shall find in My Heart the source of an infinite ocean of mercy.
Tepid souls shall become fervent.
Fervent souls shall speedily rise to great perfection.
I will bless the homes where an image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.
I will give to priests the power of touching the most hardened hearts.
Those who propagate this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be effaced.
The all-powerful love of My Heart will grant to all those who shall receive Communion on the First Friday of nine consecutive months the grace of final repentance; they shall not die under my displeasure, nor without receiving their Sacraments; My heart shall be their assured refuge at that last hour.
“Look at this Heart which has loved men so much, and yet men do not want to love Me in return. Through you My divine Heart wishes to spread its love everywhere on earth.”
