Dear Brothers and Sisters,
… The wind blows where it wills, and you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes… (cf John 3:8)
Our Pastor, with one of the Deacons in our Parish who is both Spiritual Director of our Legion of Mary and also Coordinator for the Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion discussed at a Liturgy Mtg. possibly to expand our Legion’s “Rosary Ministry”.
One of our Legion Members had begun to pray the Rosary with a small group of Residents at a Health Care Facility in our parish. I was asked to see if it might be possible to expand this ministry to serve the new Health Care Facilites which had been built in our parish, recently.
I was so blessed by the number of Legion members who were able and willing to do this! Two responses in particular blessed me: A Legionary just began Chemo treatments having been diagnosed with Cervical Cancer but she told me when she finishes her treatments in October if all goes well she’d like to participate in this Ministry.
A second Legionary is a cancer survivor at present — her treatments seem to have helped her – said that while she couldn’t visit the Facilities, if I let her know times and days when the Legion would be praying with the Residents there, she would pray her Rosary with them at home.
We have 7 Facilities now in our Parish and I’ve been able to start forming teams of 2 Legion Members for each one. It is a blessing I wanted to share on the Forum in case the Holy Spirit may be prompting others to listen to what He may be saying to them.
