About this product Product Information In the Legion of Mary, one of the Catholic Church's most effective charitable agencies in the world, Duff built an organisation that depended on each member playing his or her part, rather than on any individual leader.
Duff's vision of a lay movement was revolutionary in its time. This book tells the story of Duff. No other Irish organisation of any kind can make the claims of the Legion for its universal acceptance within decades of its foundation. A pivotal event in the spread of the Legion after a quiet decade in the s was the International Eucharistic Congress held in Dublin in The 80th anniversary of this event is of course being marked by another Congress- the 50th of the kind - in Dublin in June It was in that year of that the word of the Legion spread from Dublin through contacts made at the Congress to many mission lands and within a short few years the Legion grew with dazzling speed at the behest of Irish missionaries, through Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Many Chinese Legionaries were imprisoned or executed in the s and s for their persistence in Legion membership, and their refusal to renounce their Catholic faith. It stresses efficiency and unity of purpose as the hallmarks of its organisation.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, as they say. Legion members work in a master-and-apprentice system, and learn by doing.
It was firmly established before the Church, in its official documents caught up, 40 years after Frank Duff, on the idea that the Church exists to be missionary by its very nature, and that by virtue of baptism every Catholic is called to be apostolic. Legion work is courageous and challenging. With sheer tenacity and firmness of vision and faith the early Legion challenged and continue to see the solution to many social problems at their previously overlooked spiritual roots. From the outset some Dublin diocesan clergy were appalled at the apostolic work of lay people and felt undermined in their understanding of what constituted acceptable respective roles of clergy and lay faithful.
Archbishop Martin launches biography of “Frank Duff – a Life Story”
Frank Duff was also head of his time in ecumenical matters organising gatherings with prominent Protestants and Jews, which were graciously received by those faiths. He was castigated by the formidable Dublin Archbishop John Charles McQuaid for this at the time, who also gave Frank a hard time in delaying to give the Imprimatur to the second edition of the handbook, hampering the work of the Legion worldwide where new translations and printings were urgently needed.
Duff was not afraid to tackle the most distressing social problems, with the setting up of hostels for homeless men and women. He was prescient in condemning the practises in Magdalene laundries and other work-houses, and opposed the separation of unwed mothers from their children. No comments:.
