Family Matters

In light of the World Meeting of Families, we present the stories of

Marian Helpers — a father, a mother, a son, a daughter, a wife, and a

husband — who give witness to the “factory of hope” that is family.

This is our year!

The extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, which begins on Dec. 8, seems tailor-made to

the Marians and Marian Helpers. So let's double up our efforts to spread the message of

Divine Mercy and devotion to Mary Immaculate. What a year we have ahead of us!

All eyes were on Pope Francis during his inspirational first trip to the United States — and

we were there! Plus: the Marians react to the historic visit.

19 Deeds, Words, Prayers

Father Joseph, MIC, wants you to share the story of someone you know who lives Divine

Mercy. Also, see page 23 to find out more about our Works of Mercy Contest.
