Two new flyers
We are offering 2 new flyers: 1. Flyer about Our Lady of Ransom; 2. Flyer about St. Louis Grignion de Montfort and St. Maximilian — The Apostles of the last times.
1. Flyer: Our Lady of Ransom
Sometimes Our Lady of Ransom is depicted holding the scapular of the order. As a mendicant order, the clerics sought donations to raise the funds to pay ransoms. When Christian rulers recovered more land on the Iberian peninsula, some of it was given to the Mercedarians. They divided their funds into thirds: to ransom captives, maintain the order, and assist the poor. The Virgin was often depicted holding two bags of coins, representing the ransoms raised. In other depictions, she holds the bag of coins in one hand and the scapular in the other.
2. Flyer: St. Louis Grignion de Montfort and St. Maximilian — The Apostles of the last times
St. Louis Maria Grignion de Montfort and St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe draw together from the source of all strength and courage: they put all their trust in Our Lady and were absolutely obedient to her in everything; always and everywhere and completely only HER will counts!
