That we may recall Mary's unceasing and efficacious intercession which, although she is assumed into heaven, draws her close to those who ask her help, including those who do not realize that they are her children.
For the intercession of Our Lady of Aparecida for our Community and especially the South American Region.
That we may imitate our Founders, especially their trust in divine providence.
O God, in your infinite mercy...in response to the prayers of my brothers in spirit and in truth as well as the prayers of so many holy souls who pray for my intention, forgive me! Have mercy on me! Grant me sorrow, contrition, forgiveness! (La Trappe, 11/23/1837)
