PostHeaderIcon Mother of Mercy, pray for us!

1750 miles journey! Our trip took us for quite a distance across the northern Midwest and Northeast. Thanks to our benefactors we can make such trips and tell people about the Mercedarians. 

Merciful Father, you sent your Son into the world to free the human race from the power of sin and evil. Grant that, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Mother of Mercy, men and women ready to respond to your call to completely give themselves to Christ the Redeemer as Mercedarian Friars and Sisters. Fill them with the light of your Holy Spirit that they may renounce the power of the world, proclaim truth and freedom, and bring consolation and relief to oppressed Christians who are in danger of apostasy and despair. Bless our parishes and families with numerous vocations, willing to give their lives to the saving of captives without counting the cost, for God wills not the death of a sinner, but rather that he be converted and live! Grant we beseech you, through the intercession of the Blessed Mother and St. Peter Nolasco our earthly founder, give us an increase of laborers with Christ; to spend and consume themselves for souls. Through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with you, in union with the Holy Spirit, world without end. Amen.
