Divine Mercy –a song by Fr. Peter

O almighty and eternal God,
Lord of both the living and the dead,Your tender mercy embraces all men…
Through the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary our Mother, and of all the saints,
grant Your merciful pardon to all mothers for whom we pray, whether they still are living in this world or have departed from this flesh into the world to come.

Especially, Dear Lord, grant the requests I now make of You for my own beloved mother. Through Christ Our Lord.

Amen.

My friends

I sing and play organ the song Divine Mercy that we sang during

the Divine Mercy Sunday Mass this morning on the occasion of First anniversary of the Shrine.  See attachments 

It is not very good like a professional.  However what I can do, I try my best.

God bless you all and pray for one another.

Fr. Peter

A PRAYER FOR MOTHERS, LIVING OR DECEASED

O almighty and eternal God,
Lord of both the living and the dead,Your tender mercy embraces all men…
Through the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary our Mother, and of all the saints,

Amen.

Prayer Against the Coronavirus

“Lord Jesus Christ, our Divine Physician, we ask You to guard and protect us from Coronavirus COVID-19 and all serious illness. For all that have died from it, have mercy; for those that are ill now, bring healing. For those searching for a remedy, enlighten them; for medical caregivers helping the sick, strengthen and shield them. For those working to contain the spread, grant them success; for those afraid, grant peace. May Your Precious Blood be our defense and salvation. By Your grace, may You turn the evil of disease into moments of consolation and hope. May we always fear the contagion of sin more than any illness. We abandon ourselves to Your Infinite Mercy.” Amen. ~ Pedro de la Cruz
