The “jolly good guy” kind of pastor can be an irritant. […] Ministers of the Gospel are not used car salesmen whose heartiness is a mile wide and an inch deep. A bemused layman told me that a bishop joked with him, but turned away like a startled deer when asked an important question…

Catena Legionis in Gregorian Chant
published 16 September 2017 by Veronica Brandt

Legio Mariae HE LEGION OF MARY is a treasure trove for students of Latin. They have adapted many Roman symbols and ideas into a Catholic organization ready to take over the world.

Most of the Legionaries’ prayers are made up of the Rosary, but after that comes the Catena or chain, made up of the Magnificat with an Antiphon from the Song of Songs:

Who is she who cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in battle array.

They conclude this part with the Collect from the Mass of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces.

So, for someone coming from a background of Sung Vespers, this is a prayer crying out to be sung!
