聖母軍的誓詞
THE LEGIONARY PROMISE



    至聖聖神,我今日切願加入聖母軍,但我深知自己不能完成此任務,求你降來我心,充滿我靈,使我微弱的行動,得到你大能的支持,成為你偉業的工具。 

    我知道你曾降臨,在基督內復生了世界;我也知道你願意經過聖母,完成復生世界的工作。 

    沒有聖母,我們就無法認識你,孝愛你; 

    你的一切恩惠、德能和聖寵的分施,完全經過聖母,也按照她所喜歡的時間、份量和方式,賞給她所喜愛的人。

    我明白了,團員服務良好的秘訣,在乎與聖母完全結合,因為她是完全與你結合的。
 

    我今手執軍旗,它把這些事實擺在我眼前。
    我如同是聖母的軍人和孩子,站在你面前。
    我聲明我整個屬於她。她是我靈魂的母親;

    她的心就是我的心。

    從她的心裡仍然講出以前的那句話:主之婢女在茲你也仍然因她而降來,去做偉大的事。
 

    求你的神能庇蔭我,並以愛火降來我心,使我的靈魂與聖母的愛情和意志合成一個,拯救世界,你使聖母成為無罪的,使我也因看她而變成潔淨的。

    主基督同樣因著你而生活於我。

    這樣,我可以同衪的母親,一起把衪帶到世界各地,帶給一切需要衪的靈魂;為使我和那些靈魂,在戰爭勝利後,能與聖母永遠為王於聖三的光榮。

    我相信,你會收納我的,用我的,
    並在今日使我的柔弱變成力量。
    我加入了聖母軍,我也敢宣誓效忠服務。
    我決定要完全遵守聖母軍的紀律;
    這能使我和同道們團結在一起,也把我們組成軍隊,並整齊我們的行列,和聖母一同前進,為承行你的聖意,完成你聖寵的奇蹟,革新世界;
  
    最後,至聖聖神!把你的神國建立在人間。
    因父及子及聖神之名,亞孟。
 


 Most Holy Spirit, I, Desiring to be enrolled this day as a legionary of Mary, 
 Yet knowing that of myself I cannot render worthy service, Do ask of you to come upon me and fill me with yourself, 
 So that my poor acts may be sustained by your power, and become an instrument of your mighty purposes.
 But I know that you, who has come to regenerate the world in Jesus Christ,
 Has not willed to do so except through Mary; That without her we cannot know or love you;
 That it is by her and to whom she pleases, when she pleases, and in the quantity and manner she pleases
 That all your gifts and virtues and graces are administered; 
 And I realise that the secret of a perfect legionary service 
 Consists in a complete union with her who is so completely united to you.

 So, taking in my hand the legionary Standard which seeks to set before our eyes these things,
 I stand before you as her soldier and her child, 
 And I so declare my entire dependence on her. She is the mother of my soul.
 Her heart and mine are one
 And from that single heart she speaks again those words of old: "Behold the handmaid of the Lord';
And once again you come by her to do great things.

 Let your power overshadow me, and come into my soul with fire and love,
 And make it one with Mary's love and Mary's will to save the world;
 So that I may be pure in her who was made Immaculate by you;
 So that Christ my Lord may likewise grow me through you, 
 So that I with her, his Mother, may bring him to the world and to the souls who need him;
 So that they and I, the battle won, may reign with her for ever in the glory of the Blessed Trinity. 

 Confident that you will so receive me - and use me – and turn my weakness into strength this day,
 I take my place in the ranks of the Legion, and I venture to promise a faithful service
 I will submit fully to its discipline, Which binds me to my comrades, And shapes us to an army,
 And keeps our line as on we march with Mary,
 To work your will, to operate your miracles of grace, which will renew the face of the earth,
 And establish your reign, Most Holy Spirit, over all.
 In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
