All I have is yours

This is the 11th Acies I have attended in my life. I have not missed a single one ever since I stepped into Legion. Every year both the senior and junior Legionaries come together to pledge our loyalty to our Mother. The handbook is very insistent on the attendance of members. It even condemns those who do not attend as lacking in Legion spirit and therefore worthless. Very harsh words. This is a hard saying, who can accept it?

But my best teacher and mentor Experience proves this right. Those who don’t come for the Acies, disappear soon or do not persevere. I am grieved at the thought of the my many friends who have come and gone like the wind. But we have to move on with the times. Times are different now. And we have to grasp with many questions and doubts: Are we relevant? Does our purpose still exist? These are questions that I struggle to answer.

One thing is certain: if we give up now it will be lost forever. We would turn into a piece of church history. We will be looked upon as commentators read ‘These are the ones who have tried and failed. The experiment was a failure.’ It’s time to know what’s at stake here. If we pledge to give our all into this but we do not work together, we will lose ourselves. We will not be able to live in peace with ourselves.

So friends, if you dare to say these words ‘My Queen and Mother, I am yours. All I have is yours.’, please reflect upon how you are doing in this your life.
