The sacramentals on this website are made available by the Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mercy, an international community of priests and brothers who live a life of prayer and communal fraternity.
In addition to the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, their members take a special fourth vow to give up their own selves for others whose faith is in danger.
The Order, also called the Mercedarians, or Order of Mercy, was founded in 1218 in Spain by St. Peter Nolasco to redeem Christian captives from their Muslim captors. Visit our website of the Order of Mercy or on our Facebook page.
The Order offers its sacramentals, which spring from its charism, as a way to minister to those with particular needs.
