Virtue of the Month
In the prayer Hail, Holy Queen, we turn to Mary as our Mother of Mercy. The term, “mercy,” encompasses so much in our understanding of it. It is both forgiveness and reconciliation. It calls us to live justly so that true peace (wholeness or balance) is restored to all. Mercy reminds us that we need to care for both the spiritual and temporal needs of others. Mercy is spoken of twice in the Magnificat, the great prayer of Mary, telling of God’s remembrance of God’s people. Mercy is woven intricately throughout the lives of Mary and Jesus.
So how does mercy connect with us? Let us pause and ponder how mercy continues to be extended to us and let us look for ways to show mercy to others. If it is challenging to either accept mercy or offer mercy, let us turn in prayer to our Mother of Mercy for assistance.
