This month you are invited to stop by the Narthex to create two Mercy pinwheels. One pinwheel has the corporal works of mercy printed on it and the other has the spiritual works of mercy printed on it. This mememto can be a reminder to us of the practical ways we can all live out the virtue of Mercy in our lives.

A PRAYER FOR THE VIRTUE OF MERCY

Savior, Majestic Redeemer of mankind,
Through Your kindness and forgiveness, You secured what was rightfully Yours. Having sinned against Your greatness, lured away by the prince of darkness, your mercy released me from bondage.
Grant me the insight of this great mercy, that I may understand the sinful nature and be as merciful as Your Holy Grace. Merciful Lord, anchor my soul to Heaven,never letting it out of Your sight, ensuring my eternal presence with You!

AMEN!
