Resources for Ritual: Americas
Tuesday 23 September. Ritual prepared by the Americas
Theme of the ritual: What Mercy May Yet Be
'We gather today in this House of Mercy dreamed by Catherine McAuley and shaped by the rhythm of present need and merciful response, by sending forth and gathering in for 187 years. Rooted in this place and in our common heritage, we treasure what has been entrusted to us and we continue to ask what Mercy may yet be...'
Salve Regina (concluding hymn)
Salve, Regina, mater misericordiae;
vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve.
Ad te clamamus exsules filii Hevae.
Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle.
Eia ergo, advocata nostra,
illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte.
Et Iesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.
O clemens, o pia, o dulcis Virgo Maria.
