Although 'Mary, Mother of Mercy' is an ancient title given to our Blessed Mother, it’s not necessarily one of the first we think of - it’s certainly not one we grew up with - we might tend to think of a title relating to one of her more famous apparitions - Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Guadalupe - or perhaps we think of her as - Our Lady of the Southern Cross, Our Lady Seat of Wisdom, Our Lady of Perpetual Help. In the midst of this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Elizabeth Flynn (Fraternas) thinks it is a very timely moment to appeal to Our Blessed Mother under this title of Mother of Mercy. Prayer to Mary Mother of Mercy (from St John Paul II): O Mary, Mother of Mercy, watch over all people, that the Cross of Christ may not be emptied of its power, that man may not stray from the path of the good or become blind to sin, but may put his hope ever more fully in God who is "rich in mercy" (Eph 2:4). May he carry out the good works prepared by God beforehand (cf. Eph 2:10) and so live completely "for the praise of his glory" (Eph 1:12).
