Our Lady Of Mercy Community

 

 

The Feast is celebrated on 24 September, commemorating the foundation of the Mercedarians. After Vatican II the name for the Marian commemoration on September 24 was changed from “Our Lady of Ransom” to "Our Lady of Mercy".

The order of Our Lady of Mercy [Ransom] was founded at Barcelona [Spain] in 1233 by St. Peter Nolasco, St. Raymond of Penyafort and King James of Aragon, for the ransoming of Christians from Saracen captivity, instituted this feast in thanksgiving to Our Lady. It was gradually adopted in Spain and France, and in 1696 was promulgated by Pope Innocent XIII for observance in the Universal Church.

Mary is particularly invoked under the title of “Our Lady of Mercy “ or “Our Lady of Ransom” for the re-conversion of England [“Our Lady’s Dowry”], from false religious teaching, She is also the compassionate ransomer of living sinners from Satan’s grasp, and of the suffering souls in Purgatory.

23 Sept : Memorial of Saint Pius of Pietrelcina, Priest
Thought of the day
    Memorial of Saint Pius of Pietrelcina, Priest LECTIONARY: 451 FIRST READING: PRV 30:5-9 Every word of God is tested; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Add nothing to his words, lest he reprove you, and you will be exposed as a deceiver. Two things I ask of you, deny them not to me before I die: Put falsehood and lying far from me, give me neither poverty nor riches; provide me only with the food I need; Lest, being full, I deny you, saying, "Who is the LORD?" Or, being in want, I steal and profane the name of my God. PSALM: PS 119:29, 72, 89, 101, 104, 163 Response: Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet. Remove from me the way of falsehood, and favor me with your law. The law of your mouth is to me more precious than thousands of gold and silver pieces. Your word, O LORD, endures forever; it is firm as the heavens. From every evil way I withhold my feet, that I may keep your words. Through your precepts I gain discernment; therefore I hate every false way. Falsehood I hate and abhor; your law I love. GOSPEL: LK 9:1-6 Jesus summoned the Twelve and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them to proclaim the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick. He said to them, "Take nothing for the journey, neither walking stick, nor sack, nor food, nor money, and let no one take a second tunic. Whatever house you enter, stay there and leave from there. And as for those who do not welcome you, when you leave that town, shake the dust from your feet in testimony against them." Then they set out and went from village to village proclaiming the Good News and curing diseases everywhere.
