‘Friends Of Divine Mercy Scotland’ are organising several evenings of public witness on the streets of Glasgow, Scotland. There will be one evening each week, where the Rosary and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy will be prayed publicly, with the intention of focussing on Advent in preparation for Christmas. Full details are given below –
The Friends of Divine Mercy are going onto the streets of Glasgow again this Advent to give witness to our Faith. We will quietly be praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet and the rosary in Buchanan Street. This will happen one evening a week during Advent. I am hoping to have a priest or deacon with us to lead the chaplet and rosary on each of the 4 evenings. We will get the SCO to run a story on this too. The aim of this is to:
- Promote the devotion to Divine Mercy as Our Blessed Lord asked us to do especially in the Year of Mercy we have just completed and hopefully the blessings from this very special year will continue to Flourish in the years ahead
- To help focus peoples’ minds upon Our Lord Jesus Christ during the holy season of Advent leading up to Christmas
- To obey the wishes of our Pope Francis to take the church out into the streets and get our hands dirty
- To pray for the lonely, poor, prisoners, victims of terrorism, victims of abuse and victims of abortion
Pope Francis has visited prisoners on a regular basis since he became Pope and has encouraged us to show love and compassion for all prisoners and give them hope for the future, as he said there but the grace of God go anyone of us. The FODMS are now teaching in Barlinnie prison on a permanent basis so please pray for the team as well as the prisoners.
Praying the Divine Mercy chaplet and rosary during Advent will be a major help in praying for the success of the forthcoming Lenten 40 Days for Life Campaign.
The dates are: Tuesday 29/11, 6/12, 13/12, 20/12 6.30 p.m. – 8.30 p.m. at the Buchanan Street underground in the middle of Buchanan Street opposite the Concert Hall. Hope to see you there, if you can’t manage please pray for the above intentions. I have copied our priests and deacons into this email. If you can attend any of these dates please can you let me know. Many thanks for your support last year and hopefully this year. Robert if you could take a picture for the story that would be great, not tonight but any other night would be great, if you could let me know when you are available. Many thanks.
