The Handbook says
"It follows that a first principle of Legionary action must be to bring the priest to the people, not always in person --- for that may be impossible ---- but everywhere in influence and understanding"
I listened to a talk by Bishop Fulton Sheen about the Church. He said that it was foretold that Jesus would be of the house of David. In the bible there is a section on the genealogy of Jesus. In Luke 3:23, it says Jesus was the son of Joseph, Joseph was the son of Heli, Heli was the son of Matthat, goes on...Mattatha the son of Nathan, Nathan the son of David, .... This tedious genealogy of Jesus demonstrates that Jesus is of the house of David and the authentic Messiah.

Similarly we can trace the authority of Father Mayer back to Jesus. Father was ordained by a bishop, who was in turn ordained by another bishop. This can be traced back to Jesus who ordained the Apostles.

We do work assigned or approved by Father Mayer. This gives us a direct link back to Jesus.

Jesus says," I am the vine you are the branches." And, "Whoever receives one whom I send receives me; and whoever receives me receives him who sent me"
