2019 – 2020 MEMORARE ARMY
OUR LADY OF MERCY
2019 – 2020 MEMORARE ARMY PRAYER CAMPAIGN
Thank you for joining the Memorare Army prayer campaign.
We ask to lay our request at our Lady’s feet and pray for the special intentions of our Faustina families and faculty and for the funds needed in all areas to secure Faustina’s future for our students and families who are committed to Faustina Academy’s mission of leading souls to Heaven.
What is the Memorare Army Pledge?
Since we are reaching outside of our Faustina Circle to ask for donations to help with Faustina’s expansion and future, we are asking for your help in the form of prayers.
When Mother Theresa was told that she had to move to another location which would cost $85,000, she turned to prayer for help in purchasing the new location. She had her sisters pray a set number of Memorares daily for one year, and at the end of the year, their Memorares totaled 85,000 and she received the donated amount of $85,000. She called it the “Memorare Army of Prayer.” Benedictine College used this devotion in 2007 when they had a huge drop in enrollment. The president of the college needed 1200 new students to sustain their expenses, and after a number of people pledging to pray the Memorares daily, they enrolled 1232 new undergraduate students that Fall. There are numerous other examples of this powerful “Army of Prayer” on the Benedictine College Website under the search: Mary Miracles.
Faustina Academy is asking for a commitment of 3 Memorares per day per person for one year. Each person who commits to 3 Memorares per day will have prayed 1,000+ total Memorares in one year. If you have 5 people in your family, and each member commits to saying 3 Memorares per day for one year, that family will total 5,000 Memorares. Our goal for one year is 100,000 Memorares on an Annual basis.
We need 92 people to pledge 3 daily Memorares for 1 year to reach our goal!
The Memorare Prayer
(From the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church)
“Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.”
