Canada Needs Our Lady is a special campaign of the Canadian Society for the Defence of Christian Civilization to win the hearts and minds of Canadians for Mary. The Canadian Society for the Defense of Christian Civilization was incorporated on June 25, 2013 as a federal nonprofit organization “to advance religion by the promotion of the religious teachings, tenets, doctrines, morals, and observances of the Roman Catholic faith and their application to individuals, families, and society in Christian culture and civilization.” From our main office in Saint Hubert, Quebec, Society members and volunteers reach out to concerned Christian families and individuals across Canada. We promote and defend the principles and values of Christian civilization and spread the Gospel message far and wide.
The M at the centre of our crest stands for Mary, our Queen and Mother. The crown symbolizes the Kingship of Christ and Our Lady’s queenship over the hearts of men, and the golden lily represents the ideal of Christian Civilization. Blue is Our Lady’s traditional colour, and Our Lord’s is red. The white of the Latin Crusader’s cross symbolizes purity of doctrine and orthodoxy in the one true Catholic faith. The shield symbolizes the heroism we are called to show in being faithful to our baptismal vows and the Sacrament of Confirmation, while the gold of its frame symbolizes the nobility of this fortitude in the faith. The M’s position at the centre of the white cross symbolizes St. Louis de Montfort’s famous phrase: “To Jesus, through Mary.”
