In High Enterprise for God
– Handbook Ch 12., No. 4
The Handbook in Chapter 12, No. 4, speaks of secularism being in conflict with religion.
Powerful forces try to undermining religion and pass restrictive laws. This is in direct opposition to the Legion that works to bring Jesus to every person.
What can we, such a small group do? How can we succeed?
Our approach is to express our love for individuals by being of service to them. We encourage religious practices like Mass attendance and saying the Rosary.
As St. John Vianney said,
“The world belongs to him who loves it most, and who proves that love.”
We are the Church militant, fighting the forces of evil. The fight is for people’s souls. Each soul is precious in the eyes of God. Our weapon is love. Our approach is to bring each person we work for, closer to God.
Although formidable forces oppose us, the victory of Jesus over evil has already been won. We will be victorious.
Prayer for the Family
O God our Loving Father,
Creator of all things, you sent your Son, Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, into the home of Mary and Joseph forming the Holy Family of Nazareth; inspire us by their example to imitate their selfless charity in our family life.
Through the intercession of your Saints, help our families to be united in the heart of Christ, enjoying a loving communion with each other, recognizing and upholding the sacredness of marriage, generously welcoming the gift of life, and valuing the inestimable gift of each family member.
Help us to dedicate ourselves in generous service to our families and to reflect the love that Christ had for Mary and Joseph, making our family a true domestic Church with Christ at its centre.
Teach us to find Christ in the crosses that occur in family life and help us to find joy in them and unite them to him.
Watch over and protect our family so that each member will be faithful to the Gospel and never stray from the path of holiness. We ask you, through the intercession of our Blessed Lady, to grant us the favours of (make your request…). Amen.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we give our hearts and souls to you.
