Moments of Mercy

Each month our Moments of Mercy offer brief reflections on mercy and concrete suggestions of how we can live out the mercy that God offers us all.  These are perfect for busy days since they help us to slow down for just a few minutes and think about the gifts God has blessed us with and how we can share them.

May 2016

The prayers we offer have a great impact on our lives and the lives of those around us. In some situations, the most we can do for someone is to pray for them, especially if they live far away from us. However, prayer is by no means the least of what we do. It is powerful and effective! One way we can pray for those in need is by praying with the Blessed Virgin Mary and asking her to pray for us (MV, no. 24). There are many prayers that are part of the Church's tradition that help us pray with Mary. In living out God's mercy this month, every time you pray one of these prayers, pray it
with a particular intention of compassionate love and mercy for a particular person or situation in your life or for a troubled area of your community.

Meditations on Mercy

Mayo 2016

Las oraciones que ofrecemos tienen un gran impacto en nuestras vidas y las vidas de los que nos rodean. En algunas situaciones, lo más que podemos hacer por una persona es orar por ella, especialmente si vive lejos de nosotros. Sin embargo, la oración no es en absoluto lo más pequeño de lo que hacemos. ¡Es potente y eficaz!
Una forma en que podemos orar por los necesitados es orando con la Santísima Virgen María y pidiéndole que ore por nosotros (MV, no. 24). Hay muchas oraciones que son parte de la tradición de la Iglesia que nos ayudan a orar con María. Al vivir la misericordia de Dios este mes, cada vez que rece una de estas oraciones, récela con una intención particular de amor y misericordia compasivos por una persona o situación en particular en su vida o por un área con problemas de su  comunidad.

1. Memorare

2. Ángelus

3. Ave María

5. Dios te salve, Regina (Salve Regina)
