FAITH, SO THAT GOD CAN ACT

MONASTERY • SANCTUARY • RETREAT CENTER

“Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My mercy.”

The words of Jesus to St. Faustina

                    WE ARE THE MISSION OF DIVINE MERCY

We are a small Catholic monastic community in the Texas Hill Country. Through our life of prayer and through our retreats, we strive to bring God’s mercy and His messages of mercy to our suffering world. We invite you to visit the Mission.

Jesus, we trust in You.

A NEW WAY TO HELP THE MISSION

Almost all of MDM’s vehicles have come as gifts from friends of the Mission who donated their vehicle to us when they were ready to buy a new one. Our friends get a tax break and we get a reliable vehicle. We have been very fortunate this way.

But there have also been several individuals who wanted to donate a vehicle, when we had no need for one. And we have found that the process of a non-profit accepting a vehicle for the purpose of reselling it for cash is very problematic and complicated. This is discouraging for both parties.

However, we have just filed the paperwork with a nationwide program that will allow MDM to accept donated vehicles, without having to re-title them in MDM’s name and without paying any taxes on them. We will now be able to accept any and all vehicles, RVs, campers, boats, etc. that folks want to donate to the Mission. A third-party company will pick up the vehicles, auction them and pay us 85% of the net proceeds. That company will file all the paperwork and work with the donors.

Holy Angels, please protect what we hope will be a win/win for all!

HOLY SOULS MEMORIAL BRICKS

A devotion to the Holy Souls has been part of MDM’s ministry and spirituality from the beginning. We believe that the souls of those who have gone before us, whether in Purgatory or Paradise, are a strong intercessory force, and can be of great help to us. And if they are in Purgatory, it is our responsibility to work for their release through the offering of our prayers and Masses. Thus, between the Holy Souls and us is a relationship of profound mutual love and support.

We invite you to purchase a brick in memory of someone who has died. This is an act of love, respect and remembrance. Your brick will be part of a sacred space on consecrated ground.

Each 4×8 brick is priced at $350. The bricks allow for up to three lines of text and can accommodate 18-21 characters per line.

APPROPRIATE DRESS

The Mission is a monastery; it is consecrated ground; it is our Community’s home. We welcome anyone who wants to visit the Mission. We simply ask that they respect our request for clothing that is appropriate for a place consecrated to Our Lord and His Blessed Mother, and in coming to Mass that they dress in a manner that shows reverence for the occasion. Father wears his vestments, the altar servers put on their albs,  and the congregation wears clothes that are appropriate for attending Mass.

BELOW THE KNEE

NO SHORTS

SLEEVES

NO TANK TOPS

MODEST NECKLINES

NO LOW-CUT NECKLINES

LOOSE FITTING

NO MID-THIGH HEMLINES

Also, be alerted that the Mission terrain is fairly rough and rocky, with few paved walk ways. Good walking shoes are helpful; high heels are not. We appreciate your help in making others aware of our request for appropriate dress while attending Mass at the Mission.

We think Our Lord appreciates it too.
