Missionaries of Merciful Love
The following is a list of the Missionaries of Merciful Love member's duties. This is a general guideline of how we wish to live out our vocation. Of course, nobody is perfect and we all fall short of this list from time to time. There is no need to feel guilty if we are not perfect nor is there room for pride when we attain this. This is simply a guideline to follow. God is a God of mercy. Remember to show mercy to yourself as well as to others.
