Here is a excerpt From The Holy Rosary and the Legion:

The Holy Rosary is the lifeblood of the Legion of Mary. The Legion was born out of the Rosary, is sustained by the Rosary, and would die without constant recitation of the Rosary. The very spirit of the Legion is drawn from its meditation on the Mysteries of the Rosary.

What is the surest way to know the will of God?

Each Mystery of the Rosary depicts one specific way in which the will of God was shown in the lives of Jesus and his Blessed Mother, Mary. Experience has shown us that reciting the full fifteen decades of the Rosary is the surest way to stay connected to the will of God. The will of God was shown in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and all the Rosary does is connect us to that will of God.

Click on the links below to see some of the ways in which the Legion’s actions relate to each of the mysteries:

The Joyful Mysteries

The Annunciation

Excerpt: As members of the Legion of Mary, we always seek to imitate Mary’s “Yes” to God and to likewise do His will by the Holy Spirit. Like Mary, we strive to live a balanced life of prayer and action. By seeking to imitate Mary, we hope to embody the humility that allowed her to do the greatest things for the glory of God.

The Sorrowful Mysteries

The Annunciation

Excerpt: In order to do the work of the Legion, we have to think frequently about Jesus and His suffering, to stir up our love for Him and our brothers and sisters.

The Glorious Mysteries

The Annunciation

Excerpt: The Resurrection changed everything. Instead of everything and everyone dying, everyone is now headed to eternal life by passing through death. Even the smallest action or thought can be united to Jesus. The smallest thing can be brought through death to life.

The Luminous Mysteries

The Annunciation

Excerpt: In the case of Jesus, actions speak louder than words. He did not judge, but fed the five thousand. He did not come to condemn. He said, “I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.” Our goal in the Legion is not to persuade but to accompany and nourish.
