We will be starting regular posts here on our blog that will be reflections on our Blessed Mother and help us as Legionaries serve her, and souls we interact with as part of our Legion Work.
Our Daily pursuit of Modeling Mary
"Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid." - John 14:27
Mary is often referred to as the Queen of Peace. Although Mary knew difficulty and experienced tremendous tragedy, she never lost serenity because she loves and trusts in the Lord.
It is very easy for us to have peace when everything is going our way. But the peace that Jesus brings to us is different from what the world can bring. His is a serenity that surpasses all our understanding and It enables us to find peace in our souls even when life is burdensome.
Mary chose to live in God's security each day. As our heavenly mother, Mary invites us to follow her example and trust in the Lord on a daily basis. If we give our concerns and all our needs to Jesus the way Mary did, He will help us find the pathway to serenity. Mary is there to help us walk that path. (From "Lent and the Holy Week with Mary" by Dr. Mary Amore)

On September 4th, the Legion of Mary held its yearly Eucharistic Procession from the Cathedral of Saint John, around the adjacent streets of Downtown Cleveland. The event started with Mass, and then the Procession. The Cleveland Comitium's Spiritual Director Reverend Father Kevin Estabrook led the Mass, and the Procession. Afterwards, all returned to the Cathedral for the Legion Prayers and Rosary, and Benediction. The weather was beautiful, and the event was well attended.
If anyone has any photos of the event that they would like displayed in this post, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add them to the slideshow.

A Eucharistic procession and Patriotic Rosary took place through the streets of downtown Akron on July 3, 2021. Beginning at St. Vincent de Paul Church and ending at St. Bernard’s, priests from the parishes of St. Bernard, St. Vincent, St. Francis de Sales, Queen of Heaven, St. Anthony of Padua and St. Sebastian, joined the faithful in praying the Patriotic Rosary, praying for all offices of government and each of the 50 States. Organized by the Legion of Mary, Our Lady of Humility Praesidium, the procession attracted faithful from all over Northeast Ohio. “We had over 100 people in the procession, another 100 at St. Bernard’s, and another 2 dozen at St. Vincent’s, all praying the Rosary simultaneously” commented Ro Reed, President of the group who organized the event. “It was beautiful to witness the outpouring of support from so many Pastors and parishioners who share our desire to bring Jesus and Mary into the Community.” For more information and to learn of upcoming events, visit www.LOMOLOH.org.
