I just got back from my first Peregrinatio Pro Christo of the summer :) (I have a second one next week too) so am really fired up about how great the Legion of Mary is.
So I was wondering how many here are active members of Our Lady's Holy Legion, in praesidia that keep to the handbook?
When the Legion functions according to the handbook, keeping home to home visitation as the preferred work it can be a fantastic tool for evangelisation. In Our Curia we have had tonnes returning to confession or entering the church from systematic visiting and frequent revisiting.
It is such a pity that so many praesidia do very little that can be described as substantial or apostolic- they go round to the old folks and chat about the weather. How far from the handbook which says that all work should be done with spiritual content- to bring all people closer to our true faith by what we say.
