Allocutio at the May 2022 Senatus Meeting

Allocutio delivered by Rev. Fr. Benedict Kato, Spiritual Director from Kimaanya Comitium

Incolae Mariae and Exploratio Dominicalis (Handbook Ch. 40 Section 9 and 10)

Basing on the Spiritual Reading, Rev. Fr. Kato Benedict informed Legionaries that the way to success is to move from one place to another whether spiritually, politically or economically. If you don’t move, you remain in a stagnant life.

A Legionary who doesn’t move from one place to another for Legionary work is stagnant. Jesus himself moved from one place to another to preach the Gospel and so did the Apostles.

In the heart of the Legionary, their ought to be a spirit to move from one place to another in the spirit of Incolae Mariae and Exploratio Dominicalis. In Incolae Mariae, the Legionary gives more substantial time beyond a week or two away from home at a service and in Exploratio Dominicalis, a Preaseidium dedicates a Sunday to search for souls possibly in a problem area a little distance away but not very far.

As Councils have assigned Legionaries, the Praesidia too should take on that similar work and assign the Legionaries for the same. Legionaries need to move and aid in the work of the Priest.

Allocutio at the April 2022 Senatus Meeting

Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska

Being the Divine Mercy Sunday, the Spiritual reading was taken from the Diary of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska.

The image of the merciful Jesus is the image of Divine Mercy in which God’s love for human kind was expressly revealed to us.

By Christ’s will, the image bears the signature “Jesus, I trust in you”.

When we talk about the divine mercy, we talk about the trust in God and the love of neighbour.

To trust in God means total surrender to God’s will. Mary is the greatest example of what it means to trust in God.

The devotion to the divine mercy requires among others:

  1. Celebrate the Feast on the Sunday after Easter;
  2. Sincerely repent of all our sins;
  3. Place our complete trust in Jesus;
  4. Go to confession, preferably before that Sunday;
  5. Receive Holy Communion on the day of the Feast;
  6. Venerate the Image of the Divine Mercy;
  7. Be merciful to others, through our actions, words, and prayers on their behalf.

When Jesus forgave at the Cross, from his heart came the divine mercy.

Allocutio at the February 2022 Senatus meeting

Allocutio delivered by Rev. Fr. Peter Bakaaye, Spiritual Director of Bukuumi Comitium

The Acies (Handbook Ch. 30 Section 1)

Taking part in the Acies, Legionaries are filled with commitment to fight the evil one.

When we participate in the Acies, we become assets and not liabilities.

In consecrating ourselves, we become stronger in the move to holiness.

Allocutio at the December Senatus meeting

Allocutio delivered by Rev. Fr. Benedict Kato, Spiritual Director from Kimaanya Comitium

Mary Immaculate (Handbook Ch. 5 Section 3)

If you want to be successful, victorious, blessed, remembered, powerful, win sin, you have to try by all means to be immaculate-pure.

The first Eve was condemned because of sin and the second Eve, Mother Mary was blessed because of being immaculate. Purity helps us become victorious. It was God’s plan that Mary was reserved from the stain of original sin

Immaculate or Purity is not only receiving sacraments-Holy Eucharist or Penance but also in thoughts. It is the purity of our thoughts that will help us to fight sin and win souls to God. Let us fight to have pure thoughts.

Pure thoughts move hand in hand with pure words. What words do I speak about God? What words do I speak about myself and how do I speak about others?

The third aspect are pure actions. Prayer (How often do I pray?). Looking at the visit of Mary to Elizabeth and the plea to her son, “they have no wine”.  All these among others are pure actions that we can emulate.

Through this purity, we shall be able to bring more souls to Mary.
