WISCONSIN: Bishops to perform Act of Entrustment of the Faithful of Wisconsin to Mary, Mother of Mercy

The Year of Mercy is drawing to a close.  In the Litany of Loreto, we invoke Mary under the title of Mother of Mercy… Mater misericordiae.

On the Feast of the Most Holy Rosary, the bishops of Wisconsin will entrust the faithful of Wisconsin to Mary, Mother of Mercy in the presence of the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima, traveling worldwide since 1947 during its two-year journey across these United States.

More information is HERE.

The Mass is to be celebrated by Archbp. Jerome Listecki of Milwaukee. It will start at 7 PM.

At the same time, I’ll start Mass for the Feast of the Most Holy Rosary at St. Mary’s in Pine Bluff, WI.

Recitation of the Rosary in many places is often followed immediately by the recitation of the Litany of Loreto.

Please share!

    I’m sorry, but what day will this occur? It appears to be October 7, I guess. I know that is the feast day, but it doesn’t necessarily follow that the bishops would do this on that day.

    cathgrl – Yes, it is on the 7th. The page that is in the link is a little goofy since it assumes you came from the calendar and would know the date you are clicking on. Here is the link to the flyer:

    Talking about entrustment to our Mother Mary, did anyone watch the special program on EWTN Saturday night called “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”? What a phenomenal video. If you didn’t you missed out. Ninety minute documentary style video on Sal Alinsky and his impact on US politics and the Catholic Church. Great ending that underscores our dedication to Mary as she is the one that scripture tells us will crush the head of the snake.

    I missed that special on EWTN. I was hoping they would continue to run it, but it looks like the only way to watch it now is to buy a copy.

    The Holy Martyr Charitina
    The holy martyr Charitina, who as a young girl faced the emperor Diocletian’s
    governor boldly and testified, “It is true that I am a Christian, and a lie that I delude
    others. I lead those in error to the way of truth, bringing them to my Christ.”
    She endured awful tortures for the sake of her Lord, and died for the glory of his name.
