"Your proper vocation as lay people, that is to be a leaven in the People of God, a Christian
inspiration in the modern world, and to bring the priest to the people, is eminently ecclesial."
John Paul II's papal motto was "Totus Tuus". This is also our motto "I am all yours my Queen and
my Mother. All that I have is yours."
The Second Vatican Council exhorts all the laity to ... share in the same salvific mission of the

the needs of Italian society and of the nations of ancient Christian tradition, and on the other

ending up in work camps.   ...
The Legion bases its method of spirituality and apostolate on the dynamic principal of union
with Mary, on the truth of the intimate participation of the Virgin Mary in the plan of salvation."
Saint John Paul II, pray for us.
