|Mother of Perpetual Help Monastery|
Esopus, New York
In times of trouble Mother Mary calls to me. She reminds me of her presence, of her motherhood, of her human experience, of her presence at the foot of the cross and in the upper room. These days we have been asked by our Redemptorist brothers to join them in a novena to Mother Mary under her title of Mother of Perpetual Help. This is a special appeal to our Mother for the ravaged people and land of Haiti. Or Redemptorists and our Redemptoristine nuns report the devastation, disease and great hardship. Please join us in our appeal to Mother Mary on this her great feast.
Prayer for me...
O Mother of Perpetual Help.
your name inspires confidence.
We come to you in our need and ask your help.
You are the Patroness of the people of Haiti.
In this moment of affliction,
in solidarity with our brothers and sisters,
we pray for an end to the cholera epidemic
ravaging your children.
Bring them healing, comfort and peace.
Sustain them in this hour of darkness.
Help them to know the presence of
your Son and our Redeemer.
