检阅典礼 2012 Acies









Archbishop Murphy Pakiam: " I am all yours, My Queen, My Mother, and all that I have is yours"

Legion of Mary worldwide would hold its annual Acies on March 25 or a Sunday closest thereto. Acies is a Latin word means an army ranged in a battle array.

The Legionaries as a body assemble to renew their fealty to Mary, Queen of the Legion, and from her to receive strength and blessing for yet another year's battle with the forces of evil.

Today, The Kuala Lumpur Regia held its Acies at the St. John's Cathedral from 1:00pm to 4:00 pm. About 800 legionaries from Klang, Seremban, Kajang, Kuala Selangor, PJ and KL area attended this annual function.

Head shepherd Archbishop Murphy Pakiam led Regia Spiritual Director Fr. Raymond Pereira, Monsignor Daniel Lim and legionaries, two by two with hands holding to the Vexillum, read out loudly : "I am all yours, my Queen, my Mother, and all that I have is yours."

In his address before renewing of promise, Archbishop highlighted there are about 200,000 Catholics from East Malaysia (Sabah & Sarawak) residing in West Malaysia. Many left their remote home villages for towns and cites to find better living. They are strangers longing for care and acceptance from the local communities. He hoped legionaries will engage themselves in this particular pastoral care.

The function ended with a blessing of the Sacrament.
