Feast of Mary Help of Christians
The members of the Auxilium Christianorum should always bear in mind the reality of our state as members of the Church living in this world.
Despite St. Paul's teaching, many Catholics do not take seriously their obligation to wage war against the demonic forces. It is for this reason the Association of the Auxilium Christianorum was founded.
