Honoring the 7 Founders of the Order of the Servites

Today the church honors the seven Founders of the Order of Servites that played a significant role in the development of the early church especially in a particular devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, who was destined to be the Mother of the Messiah, the Christ, and Savior of the world.

Here is a brief write up on them via ETWN:  click here.

One of the "Servites in todays' world" that I am very fond of is Fr. Peter Mary Rookey, OSM.
He's a priest that has a healing ministry. 
He was once blind and Jesus healed him.

See him and hear him pray the Miracle Prayer (he always prays this and hands out little cards of it at his healing service):  click here!
