Patricians Meetings

Mary presides over the Patricians meeting. It was she who brought Jesus down and gave him to the world. She has charge of all subsequent words from Him to men. This dominance of hers is signified by the Legion altar which must form the centre-point of the Patrician meeting. The Patricians gather round her to talk about the Church in all its aspects, that is about Jesus who is present in their midst according to his promise. This is a high form of prayer which is made easy by the variety of the meeting; it would not be easy to spend two continuous hours in regular prayer. This is one reason why the Patricians spiritualises while it instructs.
