Since the year 1193, the Trinitarians were actively involved in ransoming Christians who were imprisoned for their faith. They had to pay the ransom to let the Christians go free. Tradition states, that on more than once ransoming journey, St. John de Matha did not have enough funds. We believe that the Virgin Mary, dressed in the Trinitarian red and blue cross, holding the Child Jesus in one hand and a purse in the other appeared to St. John de Matha and inside the purse was enough money to pay the ransom. Mary brought two remedies to us: The Remedy of her son, Jesus, and the remedy of the funds to continue the mission of the Order. In imitation of our school patron, DeMatha Catholic High School is placing this Comprehensive Campaign under the protection of Our Lady of Good Remedy. We are not only seeking funds for the present goals of the school; we want to deepen the faith and opportunities for our students. We never lose sight of the significant Remedy of her Son, Jesus, in her one hand, and we ask that she provide us with whatever else is needed in the other hand, so we too can continue the mission of the school named in honor of St. John de Matha. The feast of Our Lady of Good Remedy is October 8.
