Auxiliary Membership

"Every praesidium which has a sense of appreciation of the power of prayer will strive to possess a well-filled roll of auxiliary members. Consider the generosity of these auxiliaries who have given up to the Legion part of the precious breathings of their souls. What possibilities of sanctity are in them! The Legion is under infinite debt to them. That debt it can beautifully repay by leading those auxillaries on to perfection." (Handbook Chapter 37:14)

This membership is open to everyone. It consists of those who are unable  to assume the duties of active membership, but who associate themselves with the Legion by undertaking a service of prayer in its name. This service need not be offered directly on behalf of the Legion. It will suffice to offer it in honour of Our Blessed Lady.

Auxiliary Membership is divided into two degrees.

The Primary Degree: The Auxiliaries -
This service consists in the daily recitation of the prayers comprised in the tessera, namely:the invocation and prayer of the Holy Spirit, five decades of the Rosary and the invocations which follow them, the Catena; and the concluding prayers.

Higher Degree: The Adjutorians -
It comprises those who will (a) recite daily all the prayers of the tessera and in addition
(b) agree to attend Mass and receive Holy Communion daily, and to recite daily an Office approved by the Church.

Failure once or twice a week to fulfil the required conditions should not be regarded as a notable failure in the duty of membership. An Office is not required from Religious who are not bound by their rule to say one.

There are no age limits in the case of Auxiliary membership. Special appeal is addressed to Priests and Religious to become Adjutorians. The Legion earnestly desires union with this consecrated class, which has been specially deputed to lead lives of prayer and close intimacy with God, and which forms in the Church a glorious power-station of spiritual energy.

All members are encouraged to subscribe to Maria Legionis magazine published by the Philadelphia Senatus, Legion of Mary.
