Vessels of Mercy – We, the Vessels of Mercy, gather together in order to unite our daily actions and sufferings with the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the Cross. As our Lord poured out his blood and water as a fountain of unending mercy and love, we wish to die to ourselves completely and reflect that same love and mercy. We desire to be faithful light bearers, true vessels of divine mercy. Our Lord told St. Faustina, “I demand from you deeds of mercy which are to arise out of love for me. You are to show mercy to you neighbors always and everywhere” (Diary 742). As women of God, we wish to rise up to this call and transmit mercy and love everywhere through our prayers, our words, and our actions. By the grace of God, we will change the world from a hard place of sorrow, loneliness, and pain to a place of peace, joy, forgiveness, and most importantly of all, love. We will do this specifically by loving and caring for individuals every moment of every day.
