“Mercy is the bridge that connects God and man, opening our hearts to the hope of being loved forever despite our sinfulness.”                                        ~Pope Francis, Misericordiae Vultus

“The power of Merciful Love!  May it put a stop to evil!  May it transform consciences!”                                                                                                                                                             -  Pope John Paul II

“Private prayer is like straw scattered here and there.  If you set it on fire it makes a lot of little flames.  But gather these straws into a bundle and light them, and you get a mighty fire, rising like a column into the sky, public prayer is like that.”
         - St John Vianney

Bishop Noonan Calls Us to Pray
All life is sacred as each one of us is made in the image and likeness of God.  We cherish each person as a child of God.  We pray for victims of violence and acts of terror...for their families and friends...and all those affected by such acts against God's love. We pray for the people of the city of Orlando that God's mercy and love will be upon us as we seek healing and consolation.  Every time we look at the Cross, we see how God has forgiven us in Christ – with a love that bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things; love never fails. We dry the tears of those who weep and mourn as gently as Veronica wiped the Lord’s bleeding face on the Via Dolorosa. May the Peace of Christ dwell within our heart.


Year of Mercy Prayer


Prayer of Pope Francis for the Jubilee

Lord Jesus Christ,
you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father,
and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.
Show us your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money;
the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created things;
made Peter weep after his betrayal, and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.
Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you spoke to the 

Samaritan woman:
"If you knew the gift of God!"

You are the visible face of the invisible Father,
of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy:
let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and glorified.
You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in weakness
in order that they may feel compassion for those in ignorance and error:
let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.

Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing,
so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord,
and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor,
proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed, and restore sight to the blind.

We ask this of you, Lord Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Mercy; you who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.
