Mary’s Army in Blue
The Franciscan Friars of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mary’s Army in Blue, was started by Brother Francis Mary of Our Lady of the Rosary, FFBVM in response to a voice he heard of the Blessed Virgin Mary who asked him to start the Order. In another affirmation, Jesus told him, “Do what my Mother has asked you to do.” Hearing this he set out immediately working on getting the Order organized in order to take the document to his Diocese of Savannah, Georgia to see the Bishop for Ecclesiastical approval.
The Members of the Order are dedicated to St Francis and the Order strictly follows the Rule of 1223 AD. They have a Deep Devotion To the Blessed Mother and take a 4th Vow to the 3 Traditional Vows. The 4th Vow is the Marian Vow… Each member Professes Total Consecration of himself to Mary Immaculate, when he makes Solemn Profession of Perpetual Vows.
