Loyalty essential, says Legion of Mary founder

EMBERS of the Legion of Mary must keep themselves undefiled by the prevailing spirit of unrest in the Church and disrespect for, and defiance of, the Holy See.

In a letter to the Presidents of local Councils, Mr. Frank Duff, founder of the Legion, says: "With its first breath the Legion professed its loyalty to Rome, the centre of our Faith, the source of authority, discipline, unity."

The Legion had been approved and fostered by the four Popes under whom it had lived. "More important than that support, the Legion's system, doctrinal and apostolic, has been formed by the teachings of the Popes. It has grown out of the Magisterium as a flower would grow out of its roots."

Mr. Duff concluded his letter: "Loyalty to the Holy See being such a fundamental Legionary ingredient, the want of it must not be tolerated. Persons defective in that respect have no affinity with the Legion. They are alien and incompatible elements which cannot be of any value to the Legion."
