The great feast that unites the Mercy world is Mercy Day, 24 September.
Sharing greetings online in this Year of Mercy when 24 September holds for us all an even greater significance.
“A Lozenger of Mercy” is how one writer described Catherine McAuley. A lozenger sooths, comforts and relieves. This was Catherine’s vision and mission. As we live her vision, may we be lozengers of mercy in today’s world. On this feast of Our Lady of Mercy, during the Year of Mercy, we remember our Mercy Global Family. May Mary, Mother of Mercy, bless each one.

Mercy, the principal path pointed out by Jesus Christ to those who are desirous of following Him, has in all ages of the Church excited the faithful in a particular manner to instruct and comfort the sick and dying poor, as in them they regarded the person of our Divine Teacher, who has said, "Amen, I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to Me."
MIRP group meeting in Madison CT is "excited" to wish those walking "the principal path of Mercy" a Happy Mercy Day!
As we celebrate the Mercy Day in the Year of Mercy, we would like to convey our joyful greetings to everyone. Let us continue to give thanks to the Lord for His Mercy endures forever...for all eternity we, together with our lay partners will always be under the merciful gaze of our Heavenly Father.
