Mary Mother of Mercy is the special title that our congregation has been given.
In May we want to put ourselves under the patronage of Mary and not just ourselves but all those in need of protection:
the sick, the poor, the refugees, all those who are not noticed by others.
Maria is often depicted with a cloak, such as in St. Jan’s cathedral in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, where thousands of people come to honor her every year.
Mary is also portrayed in Brazil, where the sisters take all the people whom they work for under their protection.
We ask Mary the Mother of Mercy in this month of May: lead our feet on the road of mercy.
