Mary, Mother of Mercy


Mary, Mother of Mercy is the special title, given to our congregation. In the month May we want to place 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 ignored by others. It is a special month and we feel inspired by Mother Mary.

There are many names for Mother Mary like Mary Holy Mother of God, Holy Virgin of Virgins, Mother of the Church, Mother of Divine Grace, Mother of Good Counsel, Virgin Most Merciful, Mystical Rose, Star of the Sea and Mother of Perpetual Help.

Perhaps you feel personally inspired by one of these Mother Mary’s. Perhaps you know another Mother Mary.

In the next Briefings, we would like to publish Mary’s who inspire you. Please send us a picture of your favourite Mother Mary. It could be a photograph of a statute or a painting, but it also might be a photograph of a person you have met. If possible, you could add a short motivation why this picture inspires you.

Send your contribution to the secretary of the Generalate: In case you would like to send via regular post, send it to:
