Lean on Me,
Fear Nothing

Lord, the reason for my sadness is that,
in spite of my sincere resolutions, I fall again into the same faults.
I make resolutions in the morning, but in the evenings
I see how much I have departed from them.

Jesus: "You see, My child, what you are of yourself.
The cause of your falls is that
you rely too much upon yourself and too little on Me.
But let this not sadden you so much.
You are dealing with the God of mercy,
which your misery cannot exhaust.
Remember, I did not allot only a certain number of pardons."
"My child, life on earth is a struggle indeed;
a great struggle for My kingdom.
But fear not, because you are not alone.
I am always supporting you,
so lean on Me as you struggle, fearing nothing.
Take the vessel of trust and
draw from the fountain of life – for yourself,
but also for other souls,
especially such as are distrustful of My goodness."

From Divine Mercy in My Soul: the Diary of St. Faustina
South Texas should thank the Mission for all the rain that it has received. Ever since we announced that we would have Saturday Mass at the Teocalli, it hasn't stopped raining. God must want us to wait on that. He must have other plans.
Good Things Are Worth Waiting For.. .

When the O'Callaghan Divine Mercy Center was first built, a space was set aside for a large image of the Divine Mercy. It has taken us a while to get the proper image for it, but good things are worth waiting for. Finally with the aid and talent of artist Tim Sutherland, the Image has been beautifully framed and installed. Above the Divine Mercy hovers the Holy Spirit, one of Tim's inspired efforts.

Heading Here

In response to requests that we make giving to the Mission easier for people who don't carry cash, we have initiated a new credit card kiosk. It is located at the foot of road to the Chapel.
All donations, large or small are appreciated and put to immediate good use!

The Mission depends entirely on donations in order to carry out our ministry. We do not receive financial support from the Archdiocese.
Please pray to see if God wants you to help support His Mission of Divine Mercy.
