Our Divine Compassion Community was created in imitation of Jesus’ love of children, to embrace and empower NYC street children living in desperate circumstances. In the House of the Holy Family girls and young women were treated with dignity and care. These gifts of Spirit took root in their hearts, and they grew to womanhood affirmed in their worth and inner beauty.
Now, in our time, the children confined at our southern border also need to experience the Divine Compassion in order to maintain their humanity. We can assist through our praying for them, together as community.
This Lent we ask you to “receive all these children” by coming to the Chapel of the Divine Compassion every Friday afternoon beginning March 6th. Our outdoor Stations of the Child will be near the Chapel for personal reflection and prayer. These Stations will also be inside the Chapel, and we will offer brief reflections on their Stations at 1 pm.
Come receive the child, receive Jesus, receive God.
