Filmed in Orune, in central Sardinia, this documentary describes the preparation of the banquet and some connected rituals. The apparent impossibility often collapses at a touch; while, on the other hand, the fruit which hangs almost within reach, may persistently elude the hand, and at long last be harvested by someone else.
Beirut In a room, a group of women and one man sit waiting. The opposites are mixed up and cannot be separated; no pain, no palm; no thorn, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown. The Legion is built in the first place upon a profound faith in God and in the love he bears his children.
Hence it is that Jesus is not loved, that heretics are not converted, that the Church is not exalted; that souls, which might be saints, wither and dwindle; that the sacraments are not rightly frequented, or souls enthusiastically evangelised.
There is nothing lost of anything which is committed to the hands of the careful housewife of Nazareth. It sprang up spontaneously. Would any common knight of chivalry serve his fair lady so strangely! Indeed we place ourselves in the very flood-tide of grace, for she is the spouse of the Holy Spirit: Accordingly, the Legion is not built, as some suppose, upon two principles, that is, Mary and apostleship, but upon the single principle of Mary, which principle embraces apostleship and rightly understood the entire Christian life.
There is question of a true co-operation with her for the purpose of enriching and ransoming the souls of men.
By the Ordinary in these pages is meant the local Ordinary, that is, the bishop of the diocese or other competent ecclesiastical authority.
But each man in his own rank carries out the commands of the emperor and of his superior officers. Different places and persons are visited; works are completed, and new works are taken on. The earliest documents, as they are read in the Church and are understood in the light of a further and full revelation, bring the figure of a woman, Mother of the Redeemer, into a gradually clearer light.
Whoever excellently performs their ablutions, prays them in their proper times, completes their bows, prostrations and khushu has a promise from God that He will forgive him. It may be that a touch would be sufficient to bring the work to completion; and were the completion of the task the only objective, it would be legitimate to put forth that slight effort and no more.
She will develop in him energies and sacrifices beyond nature, and make of him a good soldier of Christ 2 Tim 2: We must look to her to feed us, to guide us, to teach us, to cure our ailments, to console us in our griefs, to counsel us in our doubts, to recall us when we wander, so that wholly confided to her care, we may grow to the resemblance of our elder brother, Jesus, and share his mission of combating sin and conquering it.
Those whom the plain gold of the apostolate could not ransom from the captivity of sin are freed - everyone - when Mary studs that gold with the jewels of the Precious Blood which she has in her gift.

Electricity helps her in washing and pressing clothes and even in cleaning floors.
There is no room for plans of self or reward; of self-will; completely submitted to Mary, the legionary distrusts the promptings of his own inclinations and in all things listens intently for the whisperings of grace. Moreover, the martial idea is one with great appeal to mankind.
