"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Feast of Our Lady of Mercy


B. Mariæ V. de Mercede
 
Merciful Father and God of all consolation,
you have shown yourself
to be wonderful in the glorious Virgin Mary,
Mother of Christ, and have given her to us
as the Mother of Mercy.
May all of us who venerate her with devotion,
always experience her powerful intercession,
and enjoy Your immense mercy.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.


Prayers for the Holy Father on his Apostolic journey to the United States.

    1. No plenary indulgences for you then. ;)

    2. 1) I got one, I presume, when arriving at Santiago (as a Sedesvacantist);
      2) supposing one really needs to pray for the Holy Father's intentions, well, one could try those of Pope Michael.

      More seriously, is the prayer otherwise indulgenced with plenary indulgence (under usual conditions)?

    3. No - I don't think the prayer carries a plenary indulgence - I was just teasing you in general about praying for the Holy Father's intentions.
